I was uninstalling some software with yumextended and somehow, everything managed to get uninstalled. There's no software left.. I don't know how else to discribe it.. I can't even re-download my nvidia drivers through the terminal because I don't have internet access anymore; I have no network drivers.

I don't know how in the heck this happened but, I need to know how to fix it.. I think I can manage to reinstall everything if I could connect to the internet but, that seems impossible because I need the internet to download the network drivers!! :confused:

Most network drivers are included in the kernel, which is Linux itself.

What steps if any did you take to enable network in the first place?
