have you worked thru this: https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Wifi yet?
when a live-system with working WLAN is running it helps to note the loaded kernel-modules, software etc to activate/use them later in your gentoo-system.
GOOD LUCK!!

michi-monster,

Your link says
Code:
Fehler 404. Seite nicht gefunden!
which looks wrong to me.

@ all - sorry. My link was set of private. I have correct it.
@ DwgG : yes, i was working with wifi. And i want copy the file, if i can. At this time i get no wlan adapter. Thats why the firmware is not right?

There can be so many mistakes that I do not know how to start.

michi-monster,

Code:
[   41.706765] rtl8192ce:_rtl92ce_read_chip_version():<0-0> Chip Version ID: B_CHIP_92C
[   41.717062] rtl8192ce: Using firmware rtlwifi/rtl8192cfw.bin
[   41.995402] ieee80211 phy0: Selected rate control algorithm ‚rtl_rc‘
[   41.995680] rtlwifi: rtlwifi: wireless switch is on


That tells that yo are using rtlwifi, rtl8192ce, rtlwifi/rtl8192cfw.bin and hints at rfkill.

A few finer points. rfkill is in two pieces. A kernel option and a user space tool. You need both pieces.
The rtl92ce kernel driver and rtlwifi/rtl8192cfw.bin both need to be in the same place. Either on your root filesystem or built into you kernel.
Until wifi works, make the rtl92ce kernel driver a module <M> in menuconfig.
The firmware is provided by linux-firmware.

Please help. I dont understand. rfkill and linux-firmware are installed. In the Kernel menu i dont find the option rtlwifi/rtl8192cfw.bin There are only other numbers.

Code:
#rfkill list
is set to no

i know, i cant add an image here. But these are good. Thats why i wil set the link with new image.
