network support while kernel compilation

i recently applied a patch to my kernel and recompiled it. but when i boot into the new kernel i dont have the networking support. i mean i cant make the network device active. What could be the problem. is it in make config?.
If i used a new kernel instead of that from my distribution(rh 7.3) what do i need to do if i want the network to work in the new kernel

thanx in advance

You need networking support plus you need a driver for your NIC (module or build in). Run lsmod when running the previous kernel to see modules (amont them there will be your NIC driver).
