Hello, I didn't really know where to post this question, since I've been using Funtoo for awhile, thus not an install question...and I'm unsure if this is a "desktop" question. I use funtoo on my personal laptop and would like to setup networking a little more robustly. I've read the Networking page (and after hours upon hours of confusion, realized exactly how different Funtoo is from Gentoo just by trying to set up a static ip) and IMHO the wiki page is a little lite on the topic of stacked runlevels and examples of use.

Just so you know, I have the problem no matter how strong my signal is. I'm using networkmanager to manage my connections, and I havent edited any config files regarding networking, and my wifi card is a "Qualcomm Atheros QCA9565 / AR9565 Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01)" My home wifi has the interface wlp5s0, and is encrypted with a wpa psk passphrase. My network supplier is Uverse, if that's any use to
So, I now have a basic working Funtoo installation, as detailed from this post: http://forums.funtoo.org/topic/410-new-funtoo-user/ However, I am stalled on static IP configuration, and have no internet connection. All of our machines here at work have static IP addresses, whether desktop or server. Ugh. I have configured (or so I think) via instructions for "Server Network Configuration": # cd /etc/init.d # ln -s netif.tmpl netif.eth0 Using nano, I created /etc/conf.d/netif.eth0 configuration file with this info: template="interface" ipaddr="126.96.36.199" gateway="192.2
