UPDATE3:
I'm tried to turn on my Android WiFi Internet Sharing, It is a WPA-PSK WiFi, but Gnome Network Manager found it!
Then, I tried to change my router settings. I discovered Gentoo can't "see" WiFi(s) on channel 12, I change my router to channel 1, then it's works!

It's may a driver's bug. But I succeed to work-around it, so I don't care about it now.

my USB WiFi model: TP-Link TL-WN721N, chip is
Code:
Atheros Communications, Inc. AR9271 802.11n
, and using ar9271-firmware(ath9k_htc).

UPDATE2:
I found some bug report on Fedora Bugzilla:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=794954
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=789291

I think it's a Gentoo/upstream bug with systemd. So, I merge it with USE '-systemd', then Gnome Network Manager is working!
WIFI are okay too. But I also can't find any WPA-PSK encrypted wifi, they are "invisible"!


UPDATE1:
I tried to "startx" as root, Gnome Network Manager is working! Everything is fine on root user.
Only wireless connection still not working: It can discovery Wifi connections. But it can't find any WPA-PSK encrypted wifi, they are "invisible"! WEP or no-encrypted wifi are visible, but after I clicked them, Network Manager told me "Auth failed!"

Gnome Network manager doesn't work!
It's very strange!

I merged a Gentoo system with Gnome3 today. I'd like to use Gnome Network Manager to manage my network, but it has many problems:

1. My net devices(such as iPhone Internet sharing, Ethernet card, USB Wifi Card) are in the list of Gnome Network manager on Gnome3.
2. I can't configure it! "configure" button is not active, it's grey.
3. It can discovery Wifi connections. But it can't find any WPA-PSK encrypted wifi, they are "invisible"! WEP or no-encrypted wifi are visible, but after I clicked them, Network Manager didn't do anything! There isn't any pop-window.
4. I forced Gnome3 to fall-back mode, and I discovered "configure" button is actived! But when I add any configure clicked "save", an error appeared "No session found for uid 1000 (unknown)". I can't understand it!
5. When I clicked WIFI(s), I also got this error: "No session found for uid 1000 (unknown)"
6. Internet connections on eth0 are okay, Because OpenRC set up it on boot, But when I turn off it on Network Manager, I can't turn on it forever!

Command line tools, such as ifconfig are okay.

I using Linux(also the command line) in a not-short-time, and Gentoo a half year. But I can't understand these things! I will try "emerge -e world", it is a magic :) But It's may can't slove the problems.

And sorry for the bad English at the end. You can't my grammer/splling errors when the problem is solved(LoL).

Please help me! Thanks!

Thanks regarding USE parameter "-systemd", this solves issue with NM in gnome-3.4.1
