    Hi there,

    Yeah, I hear you on your troubles. I couldn't get my realtek network card working with the 2.6 kernel. Once I upgraded to the 3.2 kernel everything was working for me. But I think you are somewhat stuck with that kernel with RHEL 6.

    Here is the download page for your network card. h ttp://ww w.realtek.com.tw/Downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=14&PFid=7&Level=5 &Conn=4&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false

    You will have to fix the link by removing the spaces, since I am still below the 15 post limit.

    The archive has a simple how-to in it how to install the driver. Hopefully this will fix your issue.

    Cheers

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

    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
