Run /sbin/lspci and find the hardware info for your wired / wireless
device.  Then search the CentOS wiki.  For example, if you see
"AR5007EG", there is a wiki page for that:


If you also see "Atheros", there is a good chance that you can find
the latest driver that is available as the kernel module at the ElRepo
repository ( http://elrepo.org ).  For example, if your device
requires the atl2 driver, you can install it by (after installing the

yum --enablerepo=elrepo install kmod-atl2

Hope this helps,
