I' ve just installed Arch Linux on my computer, I have some problems: If I write

# iwconfig

The result is

-bash: iwconfig: command not found

the same is with ifconfig instead if I try with

# wifi-menu

I have

Please install 'dialog' to use wifi-menu

I don't have a modem to connect wire. What should I do?

iwconfig is part of the wireless_tools package, and ifconfig is part of net-tools on my Arch laptop (relatively up-to-date). To install:

pacman -S wireless_tools  net-tools

It sounds like you need to educate yourself on the use of systemctl to start/stop the DHCP client service. My first guess after "bad cable" would be that dhcpcd isn't working correctly.
