The device ID pairing 050d:945a shows that it is supported by the in-kernel driver r8712u. Try loading it by running:

modprobe r8712u

OK Thanks.. I entered that in Terminal and nothing seemed to happen. I'm new to Linux so I'm not sure if there was something else to it.

I did this:
chkconfig NetworkManager on

and

service NetworkManager start

Both asked for my pw and then they were sending to /bin/systemctl

but NetworkManager -wifi says unknown option -wifi

It is a package name. You would install it by running:

yum install NetworkManager-wifi

Any theories on why it says Wi-Fi option is unknown with NetworkManager-wifi ?

Should I just move on I guess? Is there another Linux OS that works better with Wifi?
