Hey guys,
I've successfully installed Gentoo for first time, I'm pretty happy with that.
However I can't get wireless working and maybe I'm doing it wrong but I can't seem to find definitive documentation.

I've installed wicd (and NetworkManager as well -- I know I don't need 2 but I was trying things)

Anyways if this helps:
ifconfig -a
Code:
devMachine ~ # ifconfig -a

iwconfig
Code:
devMachine ~ # iwconfig
eth0      no wireless extensions.

lo        no wireless extensions.

sit0      no wireless extensions.

wlan0     no wireless extensions.



Code:
ifconfig wlan0 up
doesn't help

Code:
lspci -v:0b:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 4965 AG or AGN [Kedron] Network Connection (rev 61)
   Subsystem: Intel Corporation Device 1120
   Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 47

   Capabilities: [140] Device Serial Number 00-21-5c-ff-ff-6a-ca-75
   Kernel driver in use: iwl4965


What am I missing?

I thought a module in kernel and proper drivers followed by wicd should be good enough but it doesn't look like it...

boot cd, mount gentoo partitions,
Code:
wgetpaste /mnt/gentoo/var/log/dmesg
paste the url returned, run
Code:
ls /mnt/gentoo/lib/firmware/iwlwifi-4965*
If this does not return
Quote:
/mnt/gentoo/lib/firmware/iwlwifi-4965-2.ucode
you need to install firmware. To do so, recommend entering the chroot and running
Code:
emerge linux-firmware

iwconfig uses the legacy wireless extensions which are disabled by default in modern kernels. The wireless extensions have been replaced by nl80211.

Either emerge iw and run
Code:
# iw dev wlan0 scan
or if you must use iwconfig, enable CONFIG_CFG80211_WEXT in your kernel.

all ...

I think its also the case that wicd uses wireless-tools and/or WEXT, so if the OP plans on using wicd they should enable CONFIG_CFG80211_WEXT.

Note, I'm not a wicd user, this is just what I gather from reading other threads of the same or similar nature.

Thanks guys,
Yes I had to enable CONFIG_CFG80211_WEXT in kernel, on compilation wicd can now find networks, however upon connection it just reports "bad_pass"
I've been reading around and it seems wicd reports bad_pass for any error https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-945652-start-0.html.

btw
Code:
iw dev wlan0 scan
worked properly.
I'll need to use wpa_supplicant or wicd since I've my network setup to wpa.

Please let me know if anybody has a suggestion for "bad_pass" or I'll report back after searching around a bit

Yes pretty much all of them.
I've network manager installed (I should uninstall it, not running by default though)
I've removed net.* from default run level.
I'll post log as soon as I go home.

Thanks :)

wisemonkey ... if your cards driver is using MAC80211, which from the above it seems it is, then wpa_supplicant's 'nl80211' driver will work and you can do without CONFIG_CFG80211_WEXT, simply provide wpa_supplicant="-Dnl80211" in /etc/conf.d/net. This requrires getting used to using iw in place of iwconfig but as long as nothing else requires it, then you can function without.

You'd have to provide more information, like your wpa_supplicant.conf (without psk, of course), the content of /etc/conf.d/net, and a debug.log from wpa_supplicant might be useful.

Frankly when I started, I had no clue.
However I've disabled net.* (so I guess gentoo networking is out of question)
Uninstalled network manager.
right now I've networking is handled by wicd.

wicd log looks like following (connected to ethernet as wireless failed):

After looking at wicd log:
I would say wicd uses wpa_supplicant in backend.
Why is there wpa_gui?
Anyways here are few files you requested (have removed passwords):

Code:
devMachine ~ # cat /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
network={
   ssid="GuestInParadise"
   #psk=""
   psk=
   }


Code:
devMachine ~ # cat /etc/conf.d/net
# This blank configuration will automatically use DHCP for any net.*
# scripts in /etc/init.d.  To create a more complete configuration,
# please review /usr/share/doc/openrc*/net.example* and save your configuration
# in /etc/conf.d/net (this file :]!).
config_eth0="dhcp"
config_wlan0="dhcp"

#added by me
modules_wlan0="wpa_supplicant"
wpa_supplicant_wlan0="-Dwext"
config_wlan0="dhcp"


I don't know where to look for wpa_supplicant debug.log

boot gentoo, run
Code:
iwlist scan wlan0 > /iwl
, run
Code:
rc-update show
if results include dhcp, dhcpcd, net.wlan0, or wpa_supplicant; remove them -- rc-update del ____ , delete any and all networks in /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf, then reboot to the gentoo minimal cd or sysresccd, mount the gentoo partitions, run
Code:
wgetpaste /mnt/gentoo/iwl

I don't think anything related to wireless networking other than wicd is in rc-update list.
I've wired network working, do I still need to boot through minimal cd and then paste the output? I don't see why..

Anyways here is rc-update

do you have a desktop/GUI with wicd as an icon or menu item? if so use that to disable wired and enable wireless. you may need to kill wired networking, eth0, with
Code:
 rc-update del net.eth0
or that failing in /etc/rc.conf 'rc_hotplug="!net*'

"GuestInParadise" will want to know, after you select it
WPA2
CCMP
your PSK

Ah I was not disabling wired (Yes I've GUI)
I don't have net.eth0 in rc-update.
I'll check /etc/rc.conf

And if I set up wicd GUI with wpa1/2 and proper password, I'm assuming proper conf file will be created for wpa_supplicant.

I'll let you know about disabling wired when I go home tonight

Thanks

Ok that doesn't help. Disconnected wired network and tried connecting wireless but doesn't work.

Do I need to edit wpa_supplicant.conf to use wicd?

I run gnome- Clicking through Applications -> internet -> Wicd Network Manager leads to following displays http://www.flickr.com/photos/94448123@N03/

does your gui work like this?

where does it fail?

a blank /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf is perfect for wicd. It wants to run wpa_supplicant for you.

BTW, just switched from gentoo networking to wicd so i could see the screens and verify that wpa_supplicant.conf doesn't matter. took a couple of minutes since I used reboot vice service stops and starts to shift.

There is no attach option to forums?? http://oncloud9.dyndns.org/public.php?service=files&t=ff5801c1d1cdbcdbabb4d2d3dbffc115
Anyways here are my screenshots, I follow exact same steps as urs however I get Bad Password.
BTW should this thread be under networking?

are you using, can you use wicd to make and break wired connection?
are you absolutely positive that you are using the correct password for GuestInParadise? anything tricky in the passphrase spaces, hyphens, underscores anything not a letter or number?

I had the same problem with wicd not long ago. Updating to the unstable version fixed it for me.

Yes I can manage wired connection through wicd without any issue
I'm quite sure about passphrase (I double, triple checked first few times it said Bad Password) and checked just now again

How to use/install unstable (I'm assuming development) version of wicd?

just for fun try connecting Paradise with the password for GuestInParadise.


you would put
Quote:
net-misc/wicd ~amd64
in /etc/portage/package.keywords and
Code:
emerge wicd
to get testing version, but there is none at present

There are a couple workarounds in the below thread that might help you.

https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-929640-start-0.html

Also, one that might work in the debian forum.

Thanks guys :D I'm online from my wireless
I'm gonna frame
Code:
My workaround
/etc/init.d/wicd stop
/etc/init.d/wpa_supplicant start
wpa_gui &
#connected successfully
dhclient wlan0 #wlan1 or wlan2 or whatever
somewhere on my wall :P

Anyways so I got it working with wpa_supplicant instead of wicd.
I guess that means I need to add wpa_supplicant to default runlevel (can I remove wicd or do I need it for wired?)
And I'm guessing I'll be doing
Code:
dhcpcd wlan0
everytime I start computer?
only through wpa_supplicant I don't get IP / connection, I've to use dhcpcd
