Does anyone in the post so far actually own a wifi card as no one bothered to mention what wifi cards they are using so no one can provide actual correct info to try and fix this bug if it is a bug.
Thanks for the guys trying to help so far.
If you want to chit chat about Sabayon use the general chat part of the forum if off topic / not Sabayon related use Off Topic part of the forum. If you are frustrated get a penthouse magazine and disappear for 20 secs or go to the gym and unload.
Currently it looks like no one posting is serious about finding a fix for their wifi problem. Come one guys throw the dog a freaking bone / info.
Knetworkmanager is working for sometime already likely from 3.4A if not before. It had bugs but has been fixed otherwise I would not be typing here now.
AS for drivers / firmware the latest ones should work but if they have bugs then the developers of that drivers is to blame not Sabayon , use the alternative drivers or ndiswrapper or manually connect iwconfig or similar ??
We just get the stuff from our local supermarket / gentoo.org / source code and put them together. If one item has a bug then gentoo can try and fix it or send the broken / info about broken back to the developer / maker of the product and we wait on them to fix it. Compiz /glx. See a post viewtopic.php?f=3&t=9595
If you say I have a dell 1390 wifi card and it looks like it might be bcm4311mcg card then hey we can help. If not posting this vital info we can not help you.
Right now I am typing this on 3.4f with bcm4311mcg and knetworkmanager using WPA2 + tkip + password and I connected to the internet.
This works in 3.4E and earlier version depending on version some minor tweaks had to be done to get it to work = buggy drivers = the normal stuff you do in any other linux / Os even in windows 5 hours later and 2 installs later , why all the complaining ? Even in PcLinuxOs2007 rpm distro the closest thing to Sabayon and 10milj times more advanced than Vista you have to install and update several thing and that is one of the few distro's that work of off the cd + some driver installs. Sabayon is less driver install needed but not tested on all hardware.
Has anyone tried this link ?viewtopic.php?f=52&t=8933
Did anyone find the posts about dhcp and its bugs and checked your against this or updated it using a cable to your router to get internet if it is out of date ?
Come one guys get serious and stop fooling around. No one can help you if you do not read a bit or give hardware info. Also we have about 10 guys doing the development not 100 000 like windows so expect some bumps in the road. I had to fix several thing myself and learned a lot why not anyone else. Also if it is a bug and it can done again with same results then it can be fixed or blocked from next release but we would not know if the hardware info or how you got to this bug is not posted ??mbmalone
If you have tried to find the bug then you would have seen the readme file on the iso / dvd and then used this cheat codes or searched the forums / wiki top right side of this page for answers.
Chill mate the guys doing this to help us is doing it for free and if you donated then it is for the servers to host this webpage so say thanks and use the search function. No one is getting payed for this work you are complaining about.
Do yourself a favor and just get the gentoo live cd or dvd and then you would cry or build your own linux from source using the gentoo how-to pages ? O it takes close to 20+ hours enjoy. The you still have to GCC and KDE and Office by the 3rd day you will be angry if new to this.
I posted close to if not more than 20 times about cheat codes have you tried them ?
If you do not understand something say hey guys I have a problem it gets stuck during boot, reply = have you checked the md5 of the download ? Did you try in windows + virtualbox to run the iso file and test it is it working in there , if yes then good iso , next is the dvd good again virtualbox + dvd disk boot = good or not as nero does have a bug and tehy promised me they would be fixing it.
Once you have a good working disk then try the cheat codes.
We are here to help but just chill mate. We are not the enemy.
