This should be easy, I am raping the handbook, wiki, google I must be screwing up hardcore and I am SUPER tired and cant sleep without "if only I had internet after my first successful gentoo install" popping up in my head

in the livecd I
Code:
ifconf -a
lo: yadyada
wlp4s0:
blablabla


So livecd knows what its doing.

But, when I boot, grub, login this is all I get when I:
Code:
ifconfig -a
lo: derpderpderp


Am I missing something? I followed the handbook and this http://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Wifi

As you see, I need wlp4s0 interface to load but I am doing something wrong.

or the kernel module (and firmware, if needed) is not loaded.

Look at
Code:
lspci -k
on the liveCD to see the kernel module you need.
Tell us the line from lspci that identifies your wireless device.
