Hi guys,

im having some troubles configuring my wifi. Im having a Intel Centrino N-135 chipset and was following the howtos on
https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Wifi and https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Wpa_supplicant but still cant figure out what im missing/doing wrong.

I want to log in into my home wlan with wpa_gui but getting always the message "could not get status from wpa_supplicant". No matter if im starting with root or any other user. Its also no adapter and network shown what i could choose...

Output of my iwconfig:
Code:

enp4s0f2  no wireless extensions.

lo        no wireless extensions.

wlp3s0    IEEE 802.11bgn  ESSID:off/any 
          Mode:Managed  Access Point: Not-Associated   Tx-Power=0 dBm   
          Retry short limit:7   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
          Encryption key:off
          Power Management:off


wlp3s0 is the wifi device.

Code:

Code:

ifconfig -v wlp3s0 up

==> No output...

less /etc/conf.d/net
Code:

config_enp4s0f2="dhcp"
dhcpcd_enp4s0f2="-t 10"

modules_wlp3s0="wpa_supplicant"
config_wlp3s0="dhcp"



Any hints what im missing or doing wrong here?

Do you also have something like:

Code:
wpa_supplicant_wlp3s0="-Dwext"


in your /etc/conf.d/net ? [/code]

Please see the iwlwifi article. It should tell you everything you need to know about the Centrino Wireless-N 135.

Then come back with all information from the Check the setup section.
