I got funtoo running but the wired networking keeps dropping out. I have to type
every a few minutes.
Can anyone point the possible source of this problem? Thank you very much.
Uninstalled NetworkManager and now the connection is stable.... What other management package can I use?
Do you have dhcpd and NetworkManager running as daemons? only need run one
wicd is another network manager

Both are on default. Now I'm running without manager. Tried wicd same problem. Do I need manager to config wireless?
Either you use dhcp or NetworkMangager but not both. Same is true for wicd. Here's status of my daemons :
Runlevel: default dbus [ started ] metalog [ started ] consolekit [ started ] wicd [ started ] cupsd [ started ] fcron [ started ] gpm [ started ] netmount [ started ] local [ started ]
As you can see only wicd is running. In my other instance of Funtoo, I use nm and only nm is started at boot time. funtoo installation guide tells how to install and configure nm.

Now I delete dhcpcd, netif.eth0 from default rc layer. Only NetworkManager start by default. In this setup I can use wifi connection. But I still have some problems:
1. GUI WIFI interface doesn't work in Gnome 3, I have to use addwifi command.
2. Wifi sometimes drops connection, I use
to get connected.
Here is my hardware(Macbook Pro 8,2):
02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM57765 Gigabit Ethernet PCIe (rev 10) 02:00.1 SD Host controller: Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM57765 Memory Card Reader (rev 10) 03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4331 802.11a/b/g/n (rev 02)
Wifi driver should be loaded:
[ 13.478531] b43-phy0: Broadcom 4331 WLAN found (core revision 29) [ 13.479663] Broadcom 43xx driver loaded [ Features: PNL ]
Here is rc-status:
Runlevel: default hwclock [ started ] netmount [ started ] dbus [ started ] NetworkManager [ started ] metalog [ started ] consolekit [ started ] fcron [ started ] sshd [ started ] local [ started ]
Here is networking interface in /etc/init.d
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 Jan 26 17:28 /etc/init.d/netif.eth0 -> netif.tmpl -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 521 Jan 14 04:05 /etc/init.d/netif.lo -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 6.5K Jan 14 04:05 /etc/init.d/netif.tmpl -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 2.2K Jan 14 04:05 /etc/init.d/netmount
How can I get the wifi stable?

Don't use Network Mangler, er I mean Manager. Just use the openrc network scripts, then emerge wpa-supplicant with the qt4 flag enabled. This will give you a GUI to configure/scan/join. I haven't tried it since gnome2. Don't know if gnome3 likes it or not.

Please submit issue to JIRA: http://bugs.funtoo.org/secure/Dashboard.jspa
Way NetworkManager is installed is Funtoo relevant. Is gnome-extra/nm-applet installed ? You need it if you want to use a GUI in GNOME environment.
