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.


I think the atl1c driver in kmod-compat-wireless might also support that device, but first we really need to see the vendor:device ID pairing to be able to advise further.

Please post the output from the following command (note this is on one line):

for BUSID in $(/sbin/lspci | awk '{ IGNORECASE=1 } /net/ { print $1 }'); do /sbin/lspci -s $BUSID -m; /sbin/lspci -s $BUSID -n; done
