Wireless Connectivity in CentOS 6.x


Banging your head on wall for not able to connect with Free wifi in campus or coffee shop?

Its time to end it.

Just two commands and you are done.

For CentOS 6/RedHat 6:

# rpm -Uvh

Then install Ralink NIC adapter:

# yum install kmod-r8168

It will take sometime to show its action (even for 8GB RAM & 1TB system ;)

After some installation instructions, I hope you will see wireless connection in Linux !!

#CentOS6 #CentOS7 #Redhat #Ralink #Wireless #Wifi
