Creating a wireless router
 
Greetings,

I want to setup a wireless router for the first time using WPA. Here is
the setup I want...

Internet---Gentoo Wireless Router---My Computer

I have configured my kernel properly from what I can tell and emerged
madwifi. However when I modprobe ath_pci nothing shows up. When I do
ifconfig -a I get...

However my computer doesn't show a wireless network to connect too.

What do I need is to know what to add to...

/etc/conf.d/net

and

/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

Thanks

Jason
