    Fedora download links:

    Fedora Project

    You will see this "After downloading an ISO, verify it" at the top left of the page. Click on verify for an explanation.

    www.centos.org - centos.org content

    And just to add to what Roky said, you will not be able to upgrade the RHEL kernel to a recent enough kernel unless you compile your own. RHEL does not provide a kernel that you can use.

    if you need to install RHEL to study for RHCE, then do it on a machine that doesn't need wireless, or install it as a virtual machine on a desktop distro like fedora

    also, i recommend downloading with the torrent if possible, you can resume download at any time and it reduces load on community servers

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    As said by the others, WiFi is not well-supported on RHEL or CentOS (effectively the same thing). Some WiFi chip sets are supported, but a lot of newer ones are no. If you need RHEL/CentOS to study for the RHCE exams and need WiFi for network access, then follow coopstah13's advice about running it in a virtual machine under a distribution (fedora, ubuntu, et al) that does support it.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
