    Yes, go into your kernel config and make sure it looks like that in that section for your card.

    If you used genkernel, you won't have to do that.

    I configured my network:

    # cat /etc/conf.d/net
    # This blank configuration will automatically use DHCP for any net.*
    # scripts in /etc/init.d. To create a more complete configuration,
    # please review /usr/share/doc/openrc*/net.example* and save your configuration
    # in /etc/conf.d/net (this file :]!).

    # Prefer wpa_supplicant over wireless-tools

    # It's important that we tell wpa_supplicant which driver we should
    # be using as it's not very good at guessing yet
    # cat /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
    scan_ssid=1 (because network is hidden)
    ssid="My network"

    After I did:
    rc-update add net.wlan0 default
    rc-update add dhcpcd default
    Gruven, thanks for the help!

    I am just glad that I could help.

    So to sum it up, it looks like the problem was that you were using -Dmadwifi instead of -Dwext.

    If anyone was wondering, if you are using in kernel drivers for your wireless card, you need to be using -Dwext.

    I used the -Dwext. Thanks!
