I just installed Gentoo and rebooted. But the wifi doesn't work. I have D-Link dwa 556 Xtreme N pcie.
I compiled the kernel with the ath9k driver, installed linux-firmware package. When i run iwconfig ,it shows
the adapter as wlp2s0 but says it has no wireless extensions.

Thanks for any help !

See your dmesg, is firmware loaded? Did you build ath9k as module? If you built it in then you have to build in firmware, too.
