Code:
# /sbin/iwgetid -r

used to be my way of finding out what network im connected to.
But after reinstalling Gentoo, the command no longer has any output :?
even just
Code:
# /sbin/iwgetid
has no output

do you use wpa_supplicant? try `wpa_cli status`
Perhaps you are simply not connected?

Oh, also, try `ifconfig -a`.
Perhaps you forgot about wifi hardware modules?

It turns out that I need the following in my kernel for it to work ---> http://gentoo-en.vfose.ru/wiki/Dell_Inspiron_1564
Code:
 {*} I2C support  --->
    [*]   Enable compatibility bits for old user-space
    <M>   I2C device interface
    [*]   Autoselect pertinent helper modules
    I2C Hardware Bus support  --->
      <M> Intel 82801 (ICH/PCH)
      <M> Intel SCH SMBus 1.0
      <M> Intel PIIX4 and compatible (ATI/AMD/Serverworks/Broadcom/SMSC)
