So a couple days ago, wlan0 worked for me but I messed something up in vidalia with my windows account and for some reason, shit got messed up for gentoo as well.

Anyway the error message when I `/etc/init.d/net.wlan0 start` is:
Code:

*Bringing up interface wlan0
*    Starting wpa_supplicant on wlan0...
Could not set interface wlan0 flags: Operation not possible due to RF-kill
Failed to initialize driver interface
*    start-stop-daemon: failed to start `/usr/sbin/wpa_supplicant`
*ERROR: net.wlan0 failed to start


Any ideas?
Thanks

athena810 ... you probably have a hardware switch which enables/disables the wireless card, and its currently set to disable. So, toggle it.

best ... khay
