Making ridiculous topic titles is not going to get you an answer any faster. You also need to phrase your question in a more legible form, nobody here has the time to read your post multiple times just to pick out your questions.

You're in luck...since you're using RHEL, you can CALL REDHAT SUPPORT, since you're paying for it with your RHEL subscription.

If you're NOT paying for RHEL, then DO NOT USE IT. You will get ZERO support/patches/upgrades/bugfixes unless you do. Load CentOS instead, if you need RHEL. If you just want Linux, there is no reason to load RHEL...load Fedora or Ubuntu, which will probably support the 'consumer grade' hardware you've got on a laptop right off the bat.

As a last resort if you cannot get these devices to work use ndiswrapper with the windows drivers to get them working.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/ndiswrapper/

When it happens that no matter what I do I cannot get a device to work in Linux, I use ndiswrapper and move on with my life.

So you installed a 'cracked' version, since you don't actually HAVE a license? Nice.

If you want to learn Linux, then as I said, install CentOS...it's free, and almost identical in every way to RHEL. If you want to learn linux in GENERAL, load Fedora or Ubuntu. You still don't say why you need RHEL, but since you're not paying for a subscription, you shouldn't load it. Load something that's supported, or you won't be able to move very far forward. Again, loading a 'consumer grade' OS like Fedora or Ubuntu, will probably make your devices work without doing anything else.

Nobody is going to help you get your cracked version of RH running, especially since there is no reason for you to be running RH in the first place.

Wrong. ANY operating system can be used 'for hacking purpose'. There's nothing better or worse about RedHat for it.

So, it's supporting your hardware, but some of your hardware doesn't work? That makes no sense. Again, your hardware is supported under other versions of Linux just fine, and AGAIN, if you want to use RHEL, then PAY FOR IT.

Then you should have also found the INSTRUCTIONS. READ them and FOLLOW them.

I should?? Why, exactly? You want to use RHEL without paying for it, and admit to want to use it 'for hacking purpose', and you think that I should HELP YOU do it?? Kind of like saying "Hey, you're a locksmith, right?? I stole these locksmithing tools, can you teach me how to break into houses?? You've got alot of experience, so you SHOULD".

Pay for what you use. If you don't want to, don't use it. Thread reported.
