Hi all,
it's been a long since my wlan doesn't work anymore showing that message at startup
and stopping connect to wlan (wifi with and without security option).
I have search for that, finding something, but without success; I have also used the gentoo NetworkManager guide http://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/NetworkManager!
I have a broadcom and using broadcom-sta drivers (wl module)

What Do I have to do?

looks good except wpa_supplicant is in the default run level
suggest
Code:
rc-update del wpa_supplicant default
unplug the wired connection, and reboot.
After reboot, reconfigure networkmanager preferably using a GUI client

wpa_supplicant once started is hard to kill; a second instance will not start, the running instance will not subordinate or transfer
networkmanager favors wired connections
