    wireless networking with gentoo

    Ive followed the manual and have started up the wpa_supplicant, I put the init.d script inside the default startup. It seems to start up fine with eth1, but what do I do next, how do I connect to the wireless hubs.

    thanx for the help

    did you start your nick after u got the wireless driver up and the radio working? check the output of
    and the outpt of
    to see if the nic itself is started and not just the radio part of the setup

    First off, I have never used Gentoo so take the following with that in mind.

    Take a look ath this doc -

    This is a doc on setting up an Intel 2100 3b wifi card but if you pay attention to step 6 it has some of the commands that I belive are not distro specific and that you are looking for.

    If they don't seem to work for you I would do some googleing on "wireless tools for gentoo" or something like that.
