    yes im using a wireless card
    ive set it up accordingly and when i try to ping a server, it says something like "unknown server"
    im assuming that means that either ive set up the card wrong or the card isnt working.
    maybe im wrong (probably)
    if u can help, thanks

    When you are using the universal livecd, can you get online?
    What about after you chroot into the gentoo environment.

    mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/gentoo
    chroot /mnt/gentoo /bin/bash

    Did you set your nameserver in "/etc/resolv.conf"?

    well it installed correctly..i think.. but, like most of the distros ive tried, theres some visual problem that comes up when gentoo booted. ive never been able to solve this problem so im gonna put off gentoo till i get a better computer (itll probably install on my mom's computer, but she doesnt want linux ) instead, i installed ubuntu, which i dont like too much.

    What kind of visual problem? There's a big chance for that it would be fixable...
