lspci -nn | grep -i net shows

03:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Broadcom Limited NetXtreme II BCM5700 Gigabit Ethernet [14e4:164c] (rev12)
06:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Broadcom Limited NetXtreme II BCM5700 Gigabit Ethernet [14e4:164c] (rev12)
Can you please help as soon as possible how to go further????

I have spent the whole week to install centos 8 without success because of the ADAPTEC ACCRAID controller drivers (adaptec aacraid driver 9005:0286) are not supported by Centos8.
Now I installed Centos 6 and want to upgrade to Centos7 but have no ethernet connection to do anything. I have only Command Terminal

Why are you installing CentOS 6 when you want to run CentOS 7? There is NO upgrade from one to the other so you have to reinstall to get from 6 to 7.
