I've been stuck at trying to enable my wifi all day and I still can't get it. The guide says :
Next, configure /etc/conf.d/net so that the wpa_supplicant module is preferred over wireless-tools (if both are installed, wireless-tools is the default).

FILE /etc/conf.d/net Force the use of wpa_supplicant
# Prefer wpa_supplicant over wireless-tools
modules="wpa_supplicant"

But I can't file the /etc/conf.d/net file anywhere.
Same with:
Next configure wpa_supplicant itself (which is a bit more tricky depending on how secure the Access Points are). The below example is taken and simplified from /usr/share/doc/wpa_supplicant-<version>/wpa_supplicant.conf.gz which ships with wpa_supplicant.

I can't find /usr/share/doc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf.gz or the /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf file. Please help.

Forget about /etc/conf.d/net and have a look at https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Network_management_using_DHCPCD
