Gentoo not detecting wifi on Dell Latitude E6400


Alright, I'm a total n00b at Linux/Gentoo specifically. I've got it booting from a thumb drive using Universal-USB-installer-v1.5.1.exe from http://www.pendrivelinux.com/univers...easy-as-1-2-3/

I'm using Windows Vista at this point in time. Booting is not a problem. Gentoo loads up just fine, and runs well. The problem comes when I want to do anything on the internet, because it won't recognize any of the numerous WiFi signals around my house, let alone my own. I found http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handboo...ap=3#doc_chap1 which tells me that in order to manually configure web access, I need to know my IP address, netmask, broadcast, gateway, and name servers. I don't know how to find any of these things, or even if they'll help me.

My computer specs (found by running msconfig32) are as follows:

Those are all the options under Network. If there's any other information you need, then let me know and I'll get it for you.

Thanks gang.

iisundefined, who is looking for a good Linux experience.

P.S. If no one can figure anything out, then that's okay. I'll forgive you. But I'll have to try another distro instead and give up on Gentoo. (Already tried Ubuntu via a Wubi install and liked it pretty good, just looking at all the options before I make a final decision on what to install. WiFi did work on that install.)





tl;dr

Can't detect wireless networks on Gentoo being booted from a thumb drive/jump drive/pen drive. Because of inability to detect, can't connect either.

I am pretty sure this is your card;
http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/Iwlwifi

I have never used Universal-USB-installer-v1.5.1.exe so can't help with that, If you wanted to do an install by following the official docs, the best way is to use a wired connection to install the base system and then set up the wireless, I have the same wireless card on a IBM T-61 and it works great. Here is the official install guide:

If you need help head over to irc server freenode channel #gentoo
