No one supplies a driver package for that chipset. It's not supported by the distro kernel and there is no kmod for it from ELRepo either. The only way I can think of to get that driver would be to run a non-standard kernel like ELRepo's kernel-lt or kernel-ml (assuming that either of those contain the driver for that pci vendor/device id pair. It's that or change hardware.
