Hello,

Gentoo noob here, I'm using wpa_supplicant, and I don't know why DHCP daemon doesn't assign an IPv4 address to the Wifi interface (unlike the Ethernet one). Thus, I don't have access to internet.

Code:
wlp1s0: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST>  mtu 1500
        inet6 fe80::52b7:c3ff:fe55:7251  prefixlen 64  scopeid 0x20<link>
        ether 50:b7:c3:55:72:51  txqueuelen 1000  (Ethernet)
        RX packets 3313  bytes 1472126 (1.4 MiB)
        RX errors 0  dropped 22  overruns 0  frame 0
        TX packets 18  bytes 1924 (1.8 KiB)
        TX errors 0  dropped 0 overruns 0  carrier 0  collisions 0


On my other laptop, running Ubuntu, everything is fine (no internet box problem) :

Code:
wlp8s0: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST>  mtu 1500
        inet 192.168.1.46  netmask 255.255.255.0  broadcast 192.168.1.255
        inet6 fe80::5d6e:a7eb:ef1e:f49c  prefixlen 64  scopeid 0x20<link>
        ether 30:10:b3:9d:b4:05  txqueuelen 1000  (Ethernet)
        RX packets 41330  bytes 33105158 (33.1 MB)
        RX errors 0  dropped 0  overruns 0  frame 0
        TX packets 28854  bytes 5525325 (5.5 MB)
        TX errors 0  dropped 0 overruns 0  carrier 0  collisions 0


How to tell DHCP or WPA_SUPPLICANT to give an IPv4 to the wireless interface ?

Thanks.

Have you gone through this?

Yes, I followed especially "Setup the network manager". I used "wpa_gui" to configure the connection to my internet box. In the GUI, I can also see that I'm connected but there is no IPv4 address.

Code:

#cat /etc/conf.d/net
modules_wlp1s0="wpa_supplicant"
config_wlp1s0="dhcp"
config_enp2s0="dhcp"


Code:
# cat /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=wheel
update_config=1

network={
   ssid="SFR_6CC0"
   psk="MY_PSK#########"
   proto=RSN
   key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
   pairwise=CCMP
   auth_alg=OPEN
}

embeddedmz,

Please put your dmesg output onto a pastebin.

With no networking, you will need to save it to USB then post from elsewhere.
Or save it to your gentoo, then boot with something that allows networking to work.

While you are posting things
Code:
lspci -k
and
Code:
lsusb
will be useful, as well as your kernel .config file.

embeddedmz,

Your wired ethernet card would like to do a firmware update.
Code:
[   22.103313] r8169 0000:02:00.0: Direct firmware load for rtl_nic/rtl8168e-3.fw failed with error -2
[   22.103325] r8169 0000:02:00.0 enp2s0: unable to load firmware patch rtl_nic/rtl8168e-3.fw (-2)
[   22.103594] RTL8211E Gigabit Ethernet r8169-200:00: attached PHY driver [RTL8211E Gigabit Ethernet]


and the hard bit of Wifi works
Code:
[   22.386713] wlp1s0: authenticate with 60:35:c0:21:6c:c6
[   22.407229] wlp1s0: send auth to 60:35:c0:21:6c:c6 (try 1/3)
[   22.409241] wlp1s0: authenticated
[   22.410014] wlp1s0: associate with 60:35:c0:21:6c:c6 (try 1/3)
[   22.413929] wlp1s0: RX AssocResp from 60:35:c0:21:6c:c6 (capab=0x1411 status=0 aid=3)
[   22.414140] wlp1s0: associated


How did you start wlp1s0?
It probably does not have an IP address because it was never asked to get one.

As a test stop your wired ethernet.
Then
Code:
dhcpcd wlp1s0


If you have both interfaces in the same subnet at the same time only one will ever be used and the network may not work at all.

I think it's wpa_supplicant who handles that (/etc/init.d/wpa_supplicant)

It works now !
By doing so, it also enabled the wired connection (enp2s0). Is that normal ?

Yesterday, I tried calling dhcpcd on the wireless interface but without stopping the wired one and it blocked indefinitely.

So, how can I fix this mess at boot time : I have two scripts net.enp2s0 (symbolic link to net.lo) and wpa_supplicant.

Otherwise, recently I added ifplugd_enp2s0="..." to /etc/conf.d/net, to automatically enable wired interface when plugging the Ethernet cable.

Code:
$ ifconfig -a
enp2s0: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST>  mtu 1500

I didn't understand, in the above ifconfig's output, both interfaces do belong to the same subnet (192.168.1.0) - even in my ubuntu laptop, I have the same thing.

What shall I do ?

and what about the interface sit0 ? why does it exist ?

embeddedmz,

wpa_supplicant only takes care of the association ash authentication.
After that, the wired interface tools take over.

Your /etc/conf.d/net script needs something like the wikishows.

My statement about two interfaces in the same subnet being a source of problems is an over simplification.
If they both have different route metrics, the interface with the lowest metric is used.

The metrics aro shown in the output of route. I only have one interface.
Code:
$ route
Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface
default         router          0.0.0.0         UG    2      0        0 eth0
loopback        0.0.0.0         255.0.0.0       U     0      0        0 lo
loopback        localhost       255.0.0.0       UG    0      0        0 lo
192.168.100.0   0.0.0.0         255.255.255.0   U     0      0        0 eth0

Thank you NeddySeagoon, I fixed my problem by removing : /etc/init.d/net.enp2s0. That will let wpa_supplicant configure also the wired interface.

and thanks for the informations related to routing !
