This sounds like the type of issue that you need to work with RH support on
solving - if you have a specific bug report about code in dhcpcd that is broken,
then it would make sense to file a bug, but there's no way to repeat problems
with unavailable hardware.

You might also want to try RHL 7.2, which uses dhcpcd instead of pump as the
client, and may work better.
