    First issue: why are you installing CentOS 5, and not 6, or 7?
    Second: why on *earth* are you doing 5.0, rather than the current 5.11?

    That looks like it’s already got the correct driver.

    Sorry, “install the driver for USB”? Did you meant to install the driver from a flash drive, or install a USB driver? Please clarify.


  • why are you installing a completely unpatched release from 8 years ago? The updated/patched release of CentOS 5 is 5.11.

    also, EL 5 has a very short remaining life, its already off ‘full support’ as of Q1 2014, and in ‘maintenance updates only’, which will only last 2 more years (Q1 2017). Any new install now really should be CentOS 6 or 7.

    The RT8111 family of adapters are very common, I’d expect them to work with said updated release.
