Kernel
Code:
CONFIG_IWLWIFI=y

Code:
CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE=""

dmesg
Code:
[    0.534347] iwlwifi 0000:03:00.0: Direct firmware load for iwlwifi-6000g2a-6.ucode failed with error -2
[    0.534368] iwlwifi 0000:03:00.0: Direct firmware load for iwlwifi-6000g2a-5.ucode failed with error -2
[    0.534371] iwlwifi 0000:03:00.0: no suitable firmware found!


Do I need to say more? You built the driver into kernel and when kernel loads there is no firmware available. It comes accessible later (if installed), after the kernel has finished loading and the root filesystem is mounted, too late!

jaglover is right!
  1. install package sys-kernel/linux-firmware

  2. in your kernel .config: set CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE="iwlwifi-6000g2a-6.ucode"

  3. in your kernel .config: set CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE_DIR="/lib/firmware"

  4. recompile and install the kernel

  5. reboot
For additional information, look at: https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Iwlwifi
