hello

I'm new user of gentoo and I use minimale (cd live )

my wireless card is "AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express)" and it needs ath9k module

med-gentoo,

Its still a kernel problem. Do the modprobe ath9k, then post your dmesg output please.
You will need to use a pasebin site for that as its too big to fit in a post.

Code:
dmesg | wgetpaste
will work if you have wgetpaste emerged. Tell the URL.

med-gentoo,

Thats odd - there is no sign of the ath9k or wlan0 at all.
dmesg shows
Code:
Linux version 3.2.12-gentoo (root@poseidon) (gcc version 4.5.3 (Gentoo 4.5.3-r1 p1.0, pie-0.4.5) ) #1 SMP Tue Jul 3 15:33:27 UTC 2012

so your running kernel is 3.2.12 built at Tue Jul 3 15:33:27 UTC 2012.

Does that look right to you?

What does
Code:
readlink /usr/src/linux
show?
Its quite possible to build modules against one kernel while you run another.

1- I think that it's right because I used the last version of cd minimal
2- this cmd doesn't show anythig

the system is not installed yet I just try the cd

med-gentoo,

That explains a lot. The gentoo minimal CDs do not support many wifi cards.
I don't think wpa_supplicant is provided either.

For working wifi during your Gentoo install, SystemRescueCD is highly reccomended.
It provides 32 bit and 64 bit kernels, is based on Gentoo and even has the /mnt/gentoo directory so that following the handboot JustWorks.

You can install Gentoo with any boot media that gives you a root shell as none of the code on the boot media goes into your install.
