I just got a Raspberry Pi (in a kit) and installed Arch Linux on it. I plugged in my WiFi dongle (which came in the kit) and I see that Linux has the driver for it.

However, I still cannot connect to my WiFi network. I used wifi-menu and I selected my network. I entered the password and hit enter. After a few seconds (~10), I got an error: Connecting Failed! Do you want to save the profile "MyWifiNetwork"?

Is there something else that I have to do?

You should post an actual cut n' paste transcript of the error (regarding "the 'job' cannot be completed"). Also, output from iwconfig. –  goldilocks Mar 22 at 12:59

What's the driver? What's the dongle? (you might not know, try lspci | grep Network). What authentication type is your network? –  Seth Mar 22 at 19:47
    
@Seth, my router is on WEP (since I need to support older devices) with Open (No Authentication), but has a Network Key –  inixsoftware Mar 22 at 20:06
    
WEP is probably your problem - if you have an N dongle it will belly up every time. –  mikeserv Mar 23 at 12:03
