Hello All,
I was wondering if Gentoo was capable of a secure wifi connection before I go through the installation process. Thanks! --kwa71

There is no Gentoo until you install it, thus the answer is - it depends on installation media you will be using. SystemRescueCD is a popular choice, but if you already have some Linux live CD with wireless support - Ubuntu, whatnot - go ahead and use it.

So that means if I utilize Stage 3, it's at a "bare-bones" level? Meaning: I have to configure it from the ground up? I guess my question now is "How do I configure Secure Wifi w/ Stage 3? Thanks! --kwa71

Stage 3 is the base for your Gentoo build. It does not connect anywhere, you will be working in chrooted environment. You may find beneficial reading the Handbook before you attempt install.

Yes, absolutely.
I'd use dhcpcd to manage wpa_supplicant, but you're a while away from there.
