Post wi fi not working on rhel

hi i want to run wi fi on my laptop on rhel 5
i can configure the wi fi on ubntu 9.04 but iam not able to do on rhel

i have only:
ip address
router address
dns server address

there should not be much to configure on client side. Check if nm-applet show your network SSID and try to connect.
In terminal:iwconfig, ifconfing, lspci and lsusb show more informations.

There is no need to set IPs and DNS if router is configured with DHCP.
