thanks wolfden

I can make the request NP. in the meantime i just followed this

If you have a Intel Wifi Link 6000, then you need net-wireless/iwl6000-ucode.
to check which one you have:

dmesg | grep WiFi
[ 25.633582] iwlagn: Intel(R) Wireless WiFi Link AGN driver for Linux, in-tree:
[ 25.633899] iwlagn 0000:03:00.0: Detected Intel Wireless WiFi Link 6000 Series 2x2 AGN REV=0x74

then
emerge -av net-wireless/iwl6000-ucode
and a reboot..
works great now
