After installing arch, I wanted to set up wifi. I typed wifi-menu wlp3s0 and selected my network. After that wifi-menu exited with no error. I typed ping - c3 google.com to verify my internet connection. I got ping: google.com: Temporary failure in name resolution I typed wifi-menu wlp3s0 again and in front of my wireless network is a:(handmade profile present). But i want *(active connection present). Can someone help me?

  • Does ping work? – terdon Jan 22 '20 at 18:43
  • No, it says: ping: connect: Network is unreachable – BitFriends Jan 22 '20 at 18:51
  • OK, please add that into your question since that would rule out a simple DNA issue. – terdon Jan 22 '20 at 19:32

Ok, the problem was that some packages were missing. The packages you need are: wireless_tools, wpa_supplicant, netctl, dialog, dhcpcd and dhclient
