You have to make sure the 4965 mac adress is in the router mac adress allow list otherwise no connect.
WPA2 works but have to use knetworkmanager and "other" then add the wifi + name passwd and it connects or at least on mine from the live dvd 3.4e but I have the bcm43xx / ipw3945.

If not sure disable the mac adress list andlet it connect then once connected look at the current connected devices and copy the mac adress to the allow list , then enable and it should work from then on.

Wow have to update my wpa .

has anybody found a fix to this? I recently upgraded to Sabayon last week, and my 4965 card won't connect to my wireless home network. I'm not using encryption, but I have the MAC filter enabled (with the correct MAC address), I have tried net-setup, and loaded the windows driver using ndiswrapper. I've even spent an hour typing to some computer at linksys to see if there was a problem with any other setting in my router. I can see my network, but it locks up at the 28% mark. I am still very new to Linux, so if there is a fix out there can somebody break it down barney-style for me and post it? Thanks!

Check your installe dprograms against this link and the ones listed there from 3.4f.
viewtopic.php?f=52&t=10046&p=60486&hilit=ipw2200#p60486

There is 2 knetworkmanagers , the listed programs there is working currently for ipw3945 / bcm43xx / ipw2200 Maybe this would get yours to work as well.
If yours is the same then it could be something else and then it is easier to find the problem.
Dhcp 3.0.8 or there abouts was buggy so before 3.0.6 or after 3.0.10 should work.

Usually the 28% is about where authentication happens or 80% is dhcp not sure just guessing about this.

I downloaded and installed 3.4f x64 this past weekend, and i'm still not able to connect to my home wireless network. I was using Live Help this weekend, and I was told that knetworkmanager has a problem with DHCP on certain routers (I'm assuming my WRT54GX2 is one of em). I tried to configure it manually in both net-setup, knetworkmanager, and even wifi-radar...and i'm still not able to connect. I haven't disabled the DHCP feature on the router yet...i'm not in a hurry to do that since i have several computers networked (incl two laptops that travel between home, work, and school) and i'm not in a hurry to try to explain to the family what they need to do and why. I also tried to emerge kde-misc/knetworkmanager, but got an error saying there was no ebuild for that. I don't believe its a driver issue, my guess is software or the stupid router itself. Any other suggestions?
