Set up WLAN and internet

After several hours I managed to install ArchLinux (with MATE and GNOME).

But at the moment, I can't use my WLAN and even my Ethernet does not work directly.
Currently, I have to execute

sudo netctl start eth0-dhcp

before I can use LAN. And my network interfaces have strange names (enp5s0 instead of eth0 and wlp4s0 instead of wlan0).

So my questions are:
* How can I change the keyboard layout in GDM (in terminal it is German, in MATE it is German, but in GDM it is English)?
* How can I permanently rename my network interfaces?
* How get I my WLAN to work?

WLAN information
--------------------------
* Qualcomm Atheros AR9287 - worked with Ubuntu

I've tryed:

    wpa_passphrase  "MySSID"  "a-password"  > /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
    wpa_supplicant -i wlp4s0 -D wext -c /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf -B
    dhcpcd wlan0

The first command executed without any feedback, the second gave "Successfully initialized wpa_supplicant" and the third gave:

    dhcpd[847]: version 6.05 starting
    dhcpd[847]: wlp4s0: waiting for carrier
    dhcpd[847]: timed out
    dhcpd[847]: exited
