Did you load the correct module in your kernel?

meat00,

Take a look at the help in menuconfig for CONFIG_IWLWIFI. You might be missing the microcode (uCode) image.

you do have the right module, iwlwifi
you may not have the firmware that the module needs: iwlwifi-100-5.ucode .
running
Code:
ls /lib/firmware/iwlwifi-100-5.ucode
will tell you if you have it.
If you need the firmware run
Code:
emerge linux-firmware
then
Code:
modprobe -r iwlwifi
modprobe iwlwifi
then
Code:
 lspci -k
to check driver installed
