1) Maybe the gentoo cd is identifying your card correctly, but
something else is preventing it from working (I've had this happen) -
try lsmod and see if there is a module loaded for your nic.
2) Try something like Kanotix or Knoppix. They're very good at
identifying hw. In fact, due to my NIC, I do my entire Gentoo install
by booting Kanotix and then using the Gentoo Alternate Install guide
(just Google) that and it all works fine.
