No.

Since you don't have mount boot automatically you will have to mount each time. As for the /boot/gentoo-kernel it is not correct. You will have to correct it later. Right now it is not important because the kernel didn't compile yet. After it will compile I will tell you how to correct it.

try
Code:
emerge -s ieee80211


If it is installed,
Code:
emerge --unmerge ieee80211


I had this exact problem, but forgot about it. Apparently gentoo came with ieee80211 support installed as a package (or we both installed it at some point), but you need to build it into the kernel in order for the card to work properly.

Finally done it.First step was to downgrade to my 2.6.22-r2 kernel instead of 2.6.22-r5 and use genkernel to compile my kernel.of course first i had to unemerge the ip2200,ipw2200-firmware and ieee80211.Compiled my kernel as queen proposed in her post and followed the steps and edit my /etc/conf.d/net file and reboot.For more info you can ask 8O

EDIT:Not easy at all to do it,so many thanks to queen for her help

For the update, I followed your instructions on the latest kernel (just did a full update with --sync and world and compiled and booted the 2.6.22-gentoo-r9 kernel) : I now have my wifi working with ipw2200-firmware-3.0

THANKS!

Hi,
Having just bailed on SuSE I am giving Gentoo a try. I am having an issue with an HP 2510 centrino ipw2200 network card. Followed the easy steps and I can see the card in /var/log/messages but it is not getting configured. I am not seeing the firmware messages which i ought to see. I do see the module loaded in the kernel. what gives?

w1lld0h,
Please give us the output of the following commands (in bash) :
Code:
lsmod | grep ipw
lspci | egrep -i 'net|wireless'
ls -l /sys/class/net/*/device{,/driver}
ls -l /lib/firmware/
