My vaio vpccb15g lpatop shows Atheros AR8151 PCI-E gigabit ethernet controller (NDIS 6.20) as network adapter in windows 7. When tried to configure ethernet in RHEL 126.96.36.199 (kernel 2.6.18-8.el5), it is asking to select ethernet adapter. But Atheros type is not there in dropdown selection. So i installed AR81Family-Linux-v188.8.131.52.tar.gz successfully. After that also, Atheros adapter is not showing in adapter list while configuring using #system-config-network utility.
If i select any other, it will show like failed to find adapter... Anyone help..
