Hi Judrin,

Let first check the internet connection.

What do the below commands output show?

  • ip a s
  • ip route
  • cat /etc/resolv.conf

Hi Judrin,

Most easy approach in your case might be to reinstall the system and to configure the network in the Ananconda installer.
Setup your wifi network and configure it to "Automatically connect to this network when it is available" in the "Network &
Host Name" section. As you haven't done anything on/with the currently installed system, it might be the easiest way ... :)


Oh, what I forgot to mention, Judrin - why do you want to install RHEL 7.0 ? Better install the latest edition RHEL 7.6 ! :)
RHEL 7.6, as the sixth point release comes with many bug and security fixes, product enhancements and new features ...
It would be another good reason to follow my suggestion to start over from scratch by reinstalling the operating system.
