Gentoo wifi

Have a 'live-CD' version of fluffy-1.3. Wifi just installed itself ! (WNA1100 USB adapter)

Want to install a gentoo distro to use for Python web ( wsgi) development. ( using GitHub repositories )
but getting the wifi up is a bit harder.

Device is a no-show in ifconfig / iwconfig.
Drivers not found ..... or ?

Will start by reading the threads in gentoo-wifi.
thanks, bobbice

Hello bobbice. Have you already installed Gentoo as per the handbook?

More specifically have you done the following for installing from a different Live CD:

Agreed, did you get Gentoo installed using the handbook like Konphine mentioned?

If it has been installed, is your USB showing up so that your wireless nic can even be seen?
