== Need to replace this part about IP address aliasing with netctl ==
Shouldn't the hosts file include the local static IP address and computer name along with the loopback version?

==dhcpdc==

Configuration presented here isn't working.
The following section and statement are unclear:
+
 
+
"Other option
+
 
+
If for some reason dhcpcd eth0 fails, install dhclient (pacman -Sy dhclient) and use 'dhclient eth0' instead. "
+
 
+
Exactly how would one know that "dhcpcd eth0" failed?

==Troubleshooting Ping==

The section entitled Troubleshooting should probably include a section to address the problem of ping not working correctly.

== Needs cleanup ==
+
 
+
The hostname portion fails to explain whether or not the quotation marks around the name is required.  The next example does not have them.  Either way, it must be explained.
+
 
+
We are left with another question; is it listed in hosts under the loopback address only, or also included in the standard IP address?
+
 
+
Under IP Aliasing we are missing the explanation of what it is and why one would use it.
+
 
+
Regarding the TCP window scaling, what does the following phrase mean:
+
"Or you can try to remove one of your RAM sticks (yes, sir)."

Let's clean this up, everyone.

== Title ==

+
Shouldn't that be Configuring The Network, or Network Configuration? - [[User:KitchM|KitchM]] 00:50, 25 December 2009 (EST)
+
 
+
In fact, wouldn't "Network Configuration" be better because Network would be the first and most common sense search item? _ [[User:KitchM|KitchM]] 12:36, 8 February 2010 (EST)

:Perhaps "Network" would be the best title, then, since this article deals primarily with using the "network" daemon. -- [[User:Pointone|pointone]] 11:37, 26 February 2010 (EST)

::You think so?  I don't know.  Doesn't it have more to do with network setup in general?  - [[User:KitchM|KitchM]] 00:14, 5 March 2010 (EST)

== hwdetect not installed by default ==
+
 
+
In the section '''Load the device module''' it's said that one should use ''hwdetect'' which is not installed by default in Arch system. How then it can be installed without network? (= I think that should be mentioned. --[[User:Sindikat|Sindikat]] 09:05, 8 February 2010 (EST)
+
 
+
== Carrier Detect ==
+
This code can be used in <code>/etc/rc.d/network</code> to skip dhcp on interfaces without carriers:
+
<pre>
+
if [[ "$ifcfg" = "dhcp" ]]; then
+
    carrier=`cat /sys/class/net/$ifname/carrier`
+
    if [[ $carrier -eq "1" ]]; then
+
        # remove the .pid file if it exists
+
        /bin/rm -f /var/run/dhcpcd-${1}.pid >/dev/null 2>&1
+
        /bin/rm -f /var/run/dhcpcd-${1}.cache >/dev/null 2>&1
+
        /sbin/dhcpcd $DHCPCD_ARGS ${1}
+
    else
+
        echo "No carrier on $ifname"
+
    fi
+
else
+
    /sbin/ifconfig $ifcfg
+
fi
+
</pre>
+
 
+
== Static IP ==
+
The indications given for the static ip configuration do not work for me. Concretely, the gateway config gives me problems. There should be another way of doing it.
+
 
+
:There is no doubt that one has to be extremely careful to follow the directions, keeping in mind that the directions are based on a clean install.  Missing any step, or having some pre-existing setting that conflicts will cause the failure.
+
 
+
:This is a perfect place for feedback so we can get this completely goof-proof.  Can you verify that you followed the exact steps described here?  Can you give us a list of which you did and where you skipped something that didn't apply?  Don't forget the hardware arrangement of your network.  I think your information would help us polish this a little and make it more accurate. - [[User:KitchM|KitchM]] 21:21, 11 November 2010 (EST)

::you might have to get an ip via dhcp, then assign yourself a static ip in the router settings and make your computer use that with no dhcp - it really depends on the type of router [[User:Thestinger|thestinger]] 21:32, 11 November 2010 (EST)
