I have a mid-old laptop that I want to use for learning more details about Linux, so I decided for a first-time Gentoo installation. I can only connect via WLAN to internet with this laptop. My router only supports WPA(2). My biggest USB stick has 2GB for the live linux, so the full Gentoo live DVD (larger than 2GB) is no option. The minimalist Gentoo has no
wpa_supplicant (which would be needed for WPA), however.
What is the best option for me to follow the Gentoo manual as closely as possible?
