What The F

Okay so maybe Im using the wrong driver I mean the wireless card in this computer is really nice so I dont intend on buying a new one. So what Im thinking is just getting the driver from Gentoo website(if i can find them) but then again how do I get a driver when I cant get into the internet????????????? I mean this is really pissing the crap out of me its been what? like three weeks since I had to install Gentoo on my computer But hey I never give up so this weekend im gonna try and do it all over again (for sure there will another glich and I will be posting back over here in another F$%# week) well Ill keep this post updated on what other problem I encounter this weekend.
