I cant use ethernet/wifi post install, if i chroot into the system from the installation cd, ethernet networking is fine, i was able to download every package i needed.

Ethernet: Realtek RTL8101E/RTL8102E <============> using r8169 module.
Wifi: Intel Wireless-N 2230 <====================> using iwlwifi module.

Modules were compiled with the kernel, im using 3.8.13 kernel, using stage3 installation method.

When i try to restart the net.eth0 i get:

Code:
Bringing up interface eth0
   ERROR: interface eth0 does not exist
   Ensure that you have loaded the correct kernel module for your hardware
Error: net.eth0 failed to start


ifconfig doesnt shoy any device besides lo, description as follows
Code:
lo: flags=73<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING>  mtu 35536
   inet 127.0.0.1 netmask 255.0.0.0
   inet6 ::1  prefixlen 128 scopeid 0x10<host>
   loop  txqueuelen 0  (Local Loopback)
   RX packets 0 bytes 0 (0.0 B)
   RX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 frame 0
   TX packets 0 bytes 0 (0.0 B)
   TX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 carrier 0 collisions 0


lspci displays correctly the device names.

Does anyone has an idea if there is something im missing?

run ifconfig -a (to show all interfaces even down ones)

persistent naming moved eth0 to some psychotic jibberish.... to move your interface back to eth0 run (as root) touch /etc/udev/rules.d/80-net-name-slot.rules

The touch command gave no output, still no networking after doing so.

I recompiled my kernel and removed a few modules that might cause a conflict and it worked, Eth0 is now up and running. [SUCCESS :D]

Eth0 fixed, Wlan still an issue.

I went for dmesg to check out what boot errors i could find, found out that i didnt had iwlwifi-2030-ucode, so i downloaded it and installed at
/lib/firmware/

Download link for firmware files:
http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/iwlwifi

After I did that, ifconfig shows wlan0, I can't seem to get it to run tho, i used:
Code:
#ifconfig wlan0 up

That didnt gave me any errors, but iwconfig gives me the following error:
Code:
#iwconfig wlan0
wlan0 no wireless extensions

ifconfig now shows working eth0 and a weird description for wlan0:
Code:
# ifconfig -a
eth0: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST>  mtu 1500

lo: flags=73<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING>  mtu 65536
   inet 127.0.0.1 netmask 255.0.0.0

   TX packets 0 bytes 0 (0.0 B)

NOTE: XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX is a vaild MAC address

Any ideas?
