    Assuming that the problem's source is the laptop, have you tried disabling ipv6? In a root shell enter the following:

    sysctl -w net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6=1
    sysctl -w net.ipv6.conf.default.disable_ipv6=1
    Then restart your network service:

    service network restart

    Yes, it works in Windows. My system is a dual boot system and wireless works absolutely fine. I can connect to router using other devices and they all work fine. As I've mentioned earlier, it always says "Connected", even it gets IP assigned from router (you can check screen-shot in my previous posts) but the only thing is, internet never works, I cannot access router neither can ping it.

    Let me tell you one interesting fact, last night I re-installed RHEL 6. As a matter of fact it worked for 5-10 min and then back to square one (no internet) and i'm struggling again.

    Wow that's really frustrating. My last guess would be that the wlagn driver that ships with rhel 6 is not the most up to date. Try downloading the ucode:

    • Download "iwlwifi-5000-ucode-5.4.A.11.tar.gz" from "".
    • Unzip it to a folder, and copy the "iwlwifi-5000-1.ucode" file to "/lib/firmware"
    • Reboot the machine

    This also didn't work This file is already present in /lib/firmware. I think we'll have to close this chapter unresolved :'(

    Just to keep everyone posted here.. I've upgraded from RHEL 6 to RHEL 6.1 and Wifi is working absolutely fine now. I'm able to connect to internet, can ping the router. The change that I've noticed is, there is a "ifcfg-Auto_belkin.7ad7" (Auto_belkin.7ad7 is the name of my Wifi connection) file in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts, which i never saw in RHEL 6 when I was struggling to make WIfi work.
