Hi,

Welcome to LQ!
You can take help from this link
It can also work for RHEL.
You can download the Atheros ethernet driver for linux from here or you can check on google.
And I hope you're using the licensed version of RHEL, paying for that.
Or you can also take support from redhat customer portal, if you're paying them.

Once i have installed the package

kmod-atl1e-1.0.1.9-2.el5.elrepo.i686.rpm

from http://elrepo.org/linux/elrepo/el5/i386/RPMS/

Does the error has anything to do with it
