  1. Thanks so much. I'll give that a shot tomorrow. I don't recall selecting anything that should have changed the default behavior. I was using the desktop flavor.
  2. # nmcli d DEVICE TYPE STATE wlan0 802-11-wireless unavailable eth0 802-3-ethernet unavailable Will edit with output of other commands after chrooting from liveUSB to have network connection for copy paste. EDIT TO ADD That does not seem like it would be helpful after looking at the output it is the info from the liveUSB system that is not relevant. Will have to type it out by hand. #ifconfig -a eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 04:7d:7b:e8:da:0d UP BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
  3. Thanks. If I wasn't clear I did try the add wifi command after rebooting, not in the chroot. I did build the debian-sources kernel. As far as I know I only have Network Manager in use. Will try nmcli commands and report back. Thanks for your help.
  4. Thanks for the suggestion. I think the driver is installed and loaded but not sure. # lsmod | grep wifi iwlwifi 87837 1 iwldvm cfg80211 412130 3 iwlwifi,mac80211,iwldvm I did chroot from a live usb and emerge rfkill. Now after rebooting and running the addwifi command I get a different error: Error: Connection activation failed: Device not managed by NetworkManager or unavailable rfkill list returned two entries, neither of which was soft or hard blocked.
  5. I've been using Linux for years but never a source-based distro. Going through the installation guide when I got to the step of # addwifi -S wpa -K 'wifipassword' mywifinetwork I received an error message as follows: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/sbin/addwifi", line 164, in <module> main() File "/usr/sbin/addwifi:, line 144 in main check_call(['rfkill','unblock','wlan','wifi']) File "/usr/lib64/python3.3/subprocess.py", line 542, in check_call retcode = call(*popenargs, **kwargs) File "/usr/lib64/python3.3/subprocess.py", line 523, in call with Popen(*popenargs, **k
