I'm looking for the YUM\RPM package that contains the drivers for my Linksys wusb54g-v1 wireless network device, which contains the Intersil ISL3886 chipset. The Debian package is called 'linux-firmware-nonfree', but a YUM search turns up nothing by that name. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanx to yanglifu90 for that response; it sorted out this issue. For anyone else who has this same problem, go to the above link find out which file you need, download, then move it into /lib/firmware, changing the original filename [usually ending in .arm], to the filename specified on the page, such as isl3886usb, isl3886pci, and so forth. You'll need to login as root\sudo to do this. Then use modprobe --first-time to install the driver into the kernel.

sudo mv -fv directory-path/ /lib/firmware/requiredFilename

modprobe --first-time driver-name
