This could mean the live-install didn't recognize your network card.

Are we talking wireless or wired connections now?

So far I haven't seen a wired network card *not* being recognized
out-of-the-box. Wireless card are a different matter, although it might've
become better in CentOS 6.

A regular standard install with no extra bells or whistles.

You know, if we're talking wifi-networking on your computer, CentOS might
not be the best choice (please List, forgive me for saying this..). You
might be better off using something like Linux Mint instead.
