After looking up various internet resources, I came across:
The site has the required drivers. I am going as per the instructions
mentioned to compile and install the drivers, however I get the

I would be thankful for any help provided in resolving the issue.


You might want to try the various atl drivers from ELrepo (elrepo.org). They maintain current drivers for a lot of devices not generally supported by TUV. I think you'll want kmod-atl2. If you find that none of the ELrepo drivers work, it might be worth contacting them to get the correct one built and added to the repository.
