Hi there and welcome here.
You should be able to fix it if not already there "iwl5100"
- Code: Select all
emerge -S iwl5100
For some reason it is installed on mine, using 4.1 Gnome.
Keep in mind some intel wifi cards love mac80211 module so might have to load it with the card for wep /wpa /wpa2 connections.
You should also be able too but not guaranteed to work
ie: install on a usb hd and add what you need and then later boot the pc with the same usb hd / memory stick once all the parts are installed and 99% chance it works without issues or maybe a few cheat codes.
