    Hello and Welcome.
    If I were you, I would try using a different distro rather than RHEL, it just doesn't have the greatest wireless support. With that said, you can find more info here on getting started with Wireless.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    If you have a paid license for RHEL, you should utilize their tech support. If not, I recommend using a free RHEL clone like Scientific Linux or CentOS.

    Anyway, here is a how to for CentOS, which should apply equally to RHEL.
