can you do anything at all like find out if you have network connected and able to reach Internet?

Does yum work? Test with "yum update" for example, see if you get any errors.

If yum works you can install the base software by doing a groupinstall:

yum groupinstall Base

Open in new window

You can see what other groupinstalls exists by doing:

yum grouplist

Open in new window

On CentOS 7 you should be able to see ip information with the command "ip addr" and link information with the command "ip link".
