Hi gents. I just got gentoo up and running on a older macbook I had laying around. I have managed to use the docs and fourms to get me all the way up to having fluxbox running and almost all my functionality.

I'm struggling trying to get the wificard to work. I did choose my items in menuconfig that related to the card and I can also see it in lscpi. However if I do iwconfig it says "no wireless extensions"


Any advice would be appreciated. I can post anything you guys want to see after I come back from dinner. Also i'm very new to linux so be gentle = )
