The version of Enterprise Linux you have installed does not support your Intel 82579LM Ethernet controller. Enterprise Linux was designed for server hardware.
You might want to try Oracle Linux 6.2, or install a 3rd party Ethernet driver from the ELREPO project (http://elrepo.org).
The required driver for your Ethernet card might be e1000e, but it's better you search by your device ID following the instructions at http://elrepo.org/tiki/DeviceIDs

Could you get me back the output of this command:
dmesg | grep eth
Thanks for your immediate response. We decided to make this machine for our personnel use by installing windows7.
You can install Oracle Linux 6.2 using VirtualBox under Windows7 and won't have any hardware issues.1 person found this helpful
