Hello, I am having a problem with gentoo installation, my wireless network interface does not appear, when I type (iwconfig), it appears me this:

livecd # iwconfig

enp1s0 no wireless extensions

lo no wireless extensions

-------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------
I use the command (lspci -k) to see if my driver has been recognized and by the way everything went right, my machine driver is RTL8188EE, I came to ask for help, first letting me know that I installed gentoo, help: because Network interface does not appear and after doing it appear what to do to connect to my wifi network WPA-PSK :?:

OwL,

Welcome to Gentoo.

The liveCD does not support wifi very well. There are drivers for very few chipsets and WPA is not supported.

None of the code from the boot media goes into your install. The boot media is only the toolkit you use to install Gentoo.
You have two choices now.
Install using the wired interface and add wifi during the install.
Use a different boot media - System Rescue CD is good.
If you already have a Linux install, you can use that to install Gentoo too.

That's three choices.

Thanks for reply :D

I've already taken a look at the options, I'll start the installation right away. 8)
