Isn't the suggested solution a little bit overkill? (Revert to using dhcpcd with NetworkManager) Also kind of assumes that dhclient is the problem. Which I do not believe to be the case.
 
Rather then switch back to dhcpcd you could just have dhclient push the hostname.
 
A la "send host-name" in the dhclient.conf. [[User:Ortango|Ortango]] ([[User talk:Ortango|talk]]) 18:57, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
 
 
:I agree, especially the linked [https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=152376 forums thread] is confusing at least. It seems like a solution for a different problem with ''hostname problems'' only as a side effect. -- [[User:Lahwaacz|Lahwaacz]] ([[User talk:Lahwaacz|talk]]) 12:40, 21 August 2013 (UTC)
 
::+1. I just added the default method and a bit verbose: [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?title=NetworkManager&diff=284750&oldid=284280]. Switching to dhcpcd now is the third option only.

I was having an issue with getting NM to auto connect to known APs. I ran 'systemd-analyze blame' and found that I still had dhcpcd@<myadapter>.service enabled and it was taking a very long time to initialize.  I disabled it, and now NM works perfectly.  I noticed that in the wiki page it doesn't mention to disable this service, only to disable your previous wifi management system.  Hope this helps!

GNOME 3 and nm-applet

Looks like GNOME 3 doesn't need nm-applet any more. Moreover, it competes with the shell's network agent for new connections. Does anyone copy this? Should this be mentioned on the page?
