Shouldn't the hosts file include the local static IP address and computer name along with the loopback version?

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.

== 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.

Need to replace this part about IP address aliasing with netctl

Configuration presented here isn't working.


In: Manual connection at boot using systemd

the variable ${gateway} no work, maybe this not is read from /etc/conf.d/network@eth0 file
