DHCLIENT

DHCLIENT=no
This will tell netcfg to use dhcpcd instead of dhclient

I is correct? Without setting DHCLIENT, IP="dhcp" in my profile launches dhcpcd. Mykhal 17:28, 22 May 2009 (EDT)

This appears to refer to an older revision. See this commit: "Restore dhcpcd as default dhcp client". I've removed the offending line from the article.

DHCLIENT=yes still works. It generally shouldn't be necessary though.

ad-hoc mode suggested configuration does not work

The suggested configuration suggested by this wiki page in order to manage ad-hoc mode connection does not work. It fails see TOPIC (netcfg 2.5 PRE_UP problem). I don't know what should be done. Option 1 is to mention that managing ad-hoc mode is not a feature of netcfg. Option 2: ad-hoc mode does not work natively with netcfg but you could use the following workaround, for example for dhcp connection WEP encrypted using ad-hoc mode:

CONNECTION="ethernet"
DESCRIPTION="wireless connection to android tether"
INTERFACE=wlan0
IP="dhcp"
PRE_UP="iwconfig wlan0 essid AndroidTether mode Ad-Hoc key s:password"

With such a configuration it would though not be possible to run automatically the network at boot time using net-auto-wireless Deamon.

Time to remove archassistant?

This has not been in development since 2008. I suggest removing it from the page. Voidzero 10:54, 5 July 2011 (EDT)
