Hello,

I`ve been trying to make wireless connection for 2 days. Applied several things that I saw at forum. I`m at sixes and sevenses. But it`s not still working

Code:
# lspci
.....................
09:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 1030 [Rainbow Peak] (rev 34)
..............
# iwconfig
wlp9s0    no wireless extensions.
lo        no wireless extensions.
enp5s0    no wireless extensions.
sit0      no wireless extensions.

# rc-status | grep wlp9s0
 net.wlp9s0                                                        [ inactive  ]

# /etc/init.d/net.wlp9s0 start
 * WARNING: net.wlp9s0 has already started, but is inactive


/etc/conf.d/net
Code:
config_enp5s0="dhcp"
config_wlp9s0="dhcp"


I installed linux firmware. Networkmanager doesnt work wpa-supplicant doesnt scan. Help please

Things broke up with kernel above 3.7.10.

A workaround is
Code:
iwlist scan
try it.

Code:
Interface doesnt support scanning


Now I've lost my enp5s0 and wlp5s0

Code:
# iwconfig
lo        no wireless extensions.
sit0      no wireless extensions.

Code:

cat /usr/src/linux/.config | wgetpaste


(as found @ https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Troubleshooting)

or if you have .config support compiled in to your kernel (thats more accurate than /usr/src/linux/.config)

zcat /proc/config.gz | wgetpaste

While boot I see

Code:
Failed to load r8169
Failed to load iwlwifi

mount: unknown file  system type 'ext2'
 Some local file system failed to mount

Could not find a wireless interface
ERROR wpa_suplicant failed to start
ERROR interface enp5s0 does not exist
ensure that you have loaded the correct kernel module for your hardware
ERROR : net.wlp5s0 failed to start
Warning netmount is scheduled when NetworkManager has started


Before trying to make wifi I could use wired internet (enp5so) .

Code:
# nano -w /usr/src/linux/.config

iw wlan0 scan

is useful to scan and make networkmanager connect.
but you have to scan with it any time you restart your pc.

/etc/local/xxx.start make the trick.

It's a dirty workaround I dislike!

It doesnt work. Before "iw wlan0 scan" command, anything to do?

I think my problem is about kernel. I made some configuration changes. After than problem occured, may be. If I am wrong please correct me:
Any change in the same kernel:
mount /boot
changes
"make && make modules_install"
copy bzImage
anything in grub.conf?


I cant mount my boot. Can I do same changes in liveCD-chroot?

when you change kernel CONFIG , did you change Network options in the main menu? I only change drievrs--> network drivers.

the eth0 is able to work only if you choose the right driver in drivers
the wlan0 is able to work only if you choose the right driver in drivers and put the right firmware in /lib/firmware(or make it into kernel external firmware)

I think you change the network options in the main menu , or there is some other problems in your system that lead to the net error.

nothing is must to change in menu.lst(or grub.cfg), just " root (hdX,X) kernel your_kernel_name(bzImage ) root=/dev/sdxX(or UUID) and some other options"
if you genkernel(certainly you are not), you need initrd.

Hi again, I finished a new installation. The first time r8169 and iwlwifi were <*> , now <M> and made modprobe r8169 and modprobe iwlwifi.
At the beginning wired connection worked regularly. When I emerged NetworkManager and added NetworkManager and wpa supplicant default to setup w'reless, internet stopped. While opening system I see

Code:
Failed to read or parse configuration `/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf`.
* start-stop-daemon? failed to start `/usr/sbin/wpa_supplicant`
* Failed to start wpa_supplicant
* ERROR: wpa_supplicant failed to start

*WARNING: NetworkManager has started, but is inactive

*WARNING: netmount is scheduled to start when NetworkManager has started


Sometimes even wired connection is not working. And sometimes if I `connect` in wpa_gui wired connection is coming back. I haven`t seen wireless yet

Here are:
* kernel conf http://bpaste.net/show/118102/
* dmesg: http://bpaste.net/show/118104/
Code:
# ls /sys/class/net
enp5s0  lo  sit0  wlp9s0


I need guides

For what it's worth, I had too many problems with NetworkManager so I removed it and installed Wicd. Wireless has been fine ever since.
