Hi! So I followed the Handbook, and did everything I had to, meaning:

- Installed iw and wpa_supplicant
- Created the symlinks and added wlp2s0 to default runlevel

Now, I booted and did the following:

- Edited /etc/conf.d/net and added

Code:
modules="wpa_supplicant"

- Edited /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf and added

Code:
ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
ctrl_interface_group=0
ap_scan=1
network={
  ssid="simple"
  psk="very secret passphrase"
  priority=5
}


Now, I am sure the SSID and Password are correct, and my network is a simple WPA2 one. Am I missing something?

Thanks for the help!

Edit: Some extra info that might help:

Code:
lo:[...]
        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

wlp2s0: [...]
        RX packets 1329  bytes 276368 (269.8 KiB)
        RX errors 0  dropped 0  overruns 0  frame 0
        TX packets 16  bytes 1748 (1.7 KiB)
        TX errors 0  dropped 0 overruns 0  carrier 0  collisions 0



Seems wlp2s0 has already received some data?

CarterCox,

Can you pastebin your dmesg please.

I guess you don't have any network when you boot into Gentoo so you will need to write it to a file then pastebin the file.
Its far too big for a forum post.

CarterCox,

Yes, thats what I wanted to see.

Code:
[   22.001969] IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): wlp2s0: link is not ready
[   25.421034] wlp2s0: authenticate with a0:1b:29:ea:f0:52
[   25.426830] wlp2s0: send auth to a0:1b:29:ea:f0:52 (try 1/3)
[   25.429288] wlp2s0: authenticated
[   25.430036] wlp2s0: associate with a0:1b:29:ea:f0:52 (try 1/3)
[   25.435996] wlp2s0: RX AssocResp from a0:1b:29:ea:f0:52 (capab=0x1411 status=0 aid=4)
[   25.439188] wlp2s0: associated
[   25.637537] IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): wlp2s0: link becomes ready


That's the hard bit done. The wireless extra bits work. Once that happens, the WiFi is like a wired network.
How do you expect to get the rest of the setup ?

What happens if you run
Code:
dhcpcd wlp2s0

It's working now. What did I miss?

I think the problem was in /etc/conf.d/net, I had written

config_wlp2s0=DHCP

for some reason. I don't know what happened... It is working at boot withou any additional commands now. Excellent, thanks!!
