Run lspci -nn | grep -i net and get the PCI vendor and device ids for the adapter. Take that to http://www.elrepo.org and look it up in their list of supported adapters and see if they provide a kmod driver for your adapter. If so then either install the elrepo-release package then use yum to install the correct kmod or download the kmod package directly and install it using yum from the filesystem.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.
