Installation

I worked through this HowTo: Beginners_Guide

Kernel

The stock Arch kernel works just fine.

Networking

My Network was extremely slow. This was caused by an IPv6 problem. After adding the following line in the /etc/modprobe.d/modprobe.conf everything was ok.

alias net-pf-10 off

Wired

Works out of the box.

Wireless

Broadcom Corporation BCM4311

Install broadcom-wlAUR from AUR.

For getting the network up automatically, I copied the file /etc/network.d/examples/wpa.example (take the example file for your use case) into the directory /etc/network.d/ and renamed it (e.g. wlan_profile) and edited it. Then I added the following line to /etc/rc.conf:

NETWORKS=(wlan_profile)

And added the following daemon in the /etc/rc.conf:

DAEMONS=( ... net-profiles ... )

Modem

I have not tried the modem to see if it works.
