Hi,

I'm pretty sure the answer will be no - but prior to installation did you check for hardware certification for RHEL6 for inclusion of the Dell Inspiron 14R?

https://hardware.redhat.com/RHEL6

Generally enterprise-grade operating systems will not include support for "comsumer-grade" hardware.

Does it have to be RHEL, or can you use another Linux distribution on your laptop? You could possibly install a different OS, then virtualise RHEL if you need a RHEL machine to play with.

Cheers,
ZB

Are you using the System Z version of RHEL?

Code:
The QETH network device driver supports IBM System z HiperSockets, OSA-Express Fast 
Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet (including 1000Base-T), High Speed Token Ring, and ATM 
features (running Ethernet LAN emulation) in QDIO mode.

I'm sorry, but I found this a bit funny. How is it even possible to install a System Z RHEL on x86 platform?

dearsumon, you probably have to contact DELL to check if they provide NIC drivers (for this model) for RHEL.

I'm sure that you have checked ifconfig -a output as well. If you have not selected networking during installation /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 does not get created. If eth0 shows up in ifconfig, then you have to manually create ifcfg-eth0 file.
