    did you start your nick after u got the wireless driver up and the radio working? check the output of
    Code:
     iwconfig
    and the outpt of
    Code:
    ifconfig
    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 -

    http://frealek.dotnode.com/blog/view/177

    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.
