lspci is part of pciutils, running "emerge pciutils" should produce it.
running "ls -l /lib/modules" should produce a directory name in the
format '2.6.15-gentoo-r5' exact name depending on what kernel you
find /lib/modules/2.6.15-gentoo-r5 -type f -iname '*.o' -or -iname
(where "2.6.15-gentoo-r5" is replaced by your kernel name and all is
typed on one line) will produce the list of modules you compiled with
from the handbook:7.e. Configuring Kernel Modules
Configuring the Modules
You should list the modules you want automatically loaded
in /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6. You can add extra options to the
modules too if you want.
To view all available modules, run the following find command. Don't
forget to substitute "<kernel version>" with the version of the kernel
you just compiled:
Code Listing 18: Viewing all available modules
# find /lib/modules/<kernel version>/ -type f -iname '*.o' -or -iname '*.ko'
For instance, to automatically load the 3c59x.o module, edit the
kernel-2.6 file and enter the module name in it.
Code Listing 19: Editing /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6
# nano -w /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6
Code Listing 20: /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6

run lspci and see if it identifies the wifi

this this will produce only if the kernel was configured for 8139C+
(10/100mbit) support as a module and the card is 8139C+

run modprobe 8139too, this will produce only if the kernel was
configured for 8139 support as a module and the card is 8139/8129/810x
run modprobe r8169, this will produce only if the kernel was configured
for 8169 (gigabit) support as a module and the card is 8169
