Hi Phil,

As I noted in my earlier mail, the problem was resolved by installing atl1e 
driver from elrepo. Also, before that I had already tried with atl1c but it did 
not work.  

Just in case if you do require (for curiosity or better solution) here is the 
output from the command offered by yourself:

02:00.0 "Ethernet controller" "Atheros Communications Inc." "AR8151 v2.0 
Gigabit Ethernet" -rc0 "Giga-byte Technology" "Device e000"
03:01.0 "Network controller" "Ralink corp." "RT2500 Wireless 802.11bg" -r01 
"Linksys" "WMP54G 2.0 PCI Adapter"

Thanks for your reply!

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 

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