Hi friends,

I am trying Gentoo for first on my laptop. I have installed the base system with the help of handbook.Every thing went on well. Except some minor module problems on the beginning which I could fix for my self.

Now wired and wireless divices (both intel) are up. I installed and enabled networkmanager which is running fine, but I am not able to configure my wifi which uses wpa2 security.

I have created a file "MyWirelessSSID" in /etc/NetwokManager/systrm-connections
and entered as follws

[connection]
type=802-11-wireless
id="MyNetworkSSID"
uuid="somenumber (actually copied)"


[802-11-wireless]
ssid="MyNetworkSSID"
mode=infrastructure
security=802-11-wireless-security

[802-wireless-security]
key-mgmt=wpa-psk
psk="MyNetorkKey"


Please let me know the correct way, I am struggling with this for a long time.
wireless device is working fine as I can see all wireless networks when i run nm-tools command. so nm already scanned nd know all the networks available.
I have not installed the desktop.
