[SOLVED] Using iwd after successful install

Synopsys:  Create /etc/iwd/main.conf as detailed below.


I have no issues connecting to the Internet during the install from the 2020.07 Arch iso.

The new install has iwd:

pacman -Q iwd                                                                                                                                                                                                      !

 
iwd 1.8-1

I seem to have successfully connected to my wi-fi network from within the new install:

iwctl station wlan0 show                                                                                                                                                                                      !


                                 Station: wlan0

It even seens to reconnect automatically on reboot:

iwctl station wlan0 get-networks                                        :

So what am I missing?

Backward compatibility is for the masses. There's no dual-boot here.

Perfect!  Thank you.  I created /etc/iwd/main.conf as shown below and I can access the Internet now.

[General]
EnableNetworkConfiguration=true

[Network]
NameResolvingService=systemd

Re: [SOLVED] Using iwd after successful install

Hello, I have an issue very similar to (if not the same as) this. Shoud I open a new thread anyway? Since the post is 3 days old only, I think I'm not necrobumping, am I?

Nevermind, the output of

# systemctl status iwd.service

was pretty clear about what I had to do

● iwd.service - Wireless service
     Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/iwd.service; disabled; vendor preset: disabled)

Jul 15 08:09:12 redviper iwd[396]: resolve-systemd: Failed to add domain name. Is 'systemd-resolved' service running?

So I enabled and started both systemd-resolved and iwd.service, and now the connection happens when booting (before loggin in, actually hmm ).

I hope this can be helpful to some other newbie coming across this thread.
