Hi,

I am new to Gentoo, and yes I am also new to compiling kernels.

Well after that introduction, I will give you the details.
I am running now

Here you can find the config file for my current kernel.

And the used to generate the new kernel (where NIC is not detected)

Please help me with this problem.

If you would like to view a formated version of this info, please go to:

best regards and thanks a lot in advance for your time.
