    Were you able to connect previously? Or is this a new install?

    We need some detailed information before we can help you troubleshoot it. Read through the stickied post, linked to below. It describes how to find the information that we need.

    RHEL is not know for having very good wireless support. It has no wireless connection manager, so I recommend installing Wicd.

    What distro are you using? Are you using NetworkManager? WICD? Neither?

    distro = Linux Distribution
    Linux Distribution = Fedora 10, openSUSE11.2, Ubuntu 9.04. etc.
