[Solved] Internet connection is manual after install

After installation, I need to run the below command to connect to the Internet

dhcpcd enp0s3

I installed Arch on Virtual Box 6.1 running in Windows 10 Pro. During installation internet was working by default. After reboot it stopped working. And I had to use the above mentioned command. Could someone suggest options?

Steps I followed to install :-

Created a 15GB virtual disk

After booting to live CD

loadkeys uk

fdisk
to create two partitions for BIOS boot(2MB) and Linux filesystem(remaining)
GPT was also written

mkfs.ext4 /dev/sda2

mount /dev/sda2 /mnt

pacstrap /mnt base linux linux-firmware i3-wm python vim grub xorg-xserver dhcpcd

genfstab -U /mnt >> /mnt/etc/fstab

arch-chroot /mnt

ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/London /etc/localtime

hwclock --systohc

vim /etc/locale.gen
uncomment en_GB.UTF-8 UTF-8

locale-gen

vim /etc/locale.conf
LANG=en_GB.UTF-8

vim /etc/vconsole.conf
KEYMAP=uk

vim /etc/hostname
hostname

passwd
To set the root password

vim /etc/hosts
127.0.0.1    localhost
::1        localhost
127.0.1.1    hostname.localdomain    hostname

grub-install --target=i386-pc /dev/sda

grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

vim /boot/grub/grub.cfg
Reduce wait in grub

useradd -m user1

passwd user1

Re: [Solved] Internet connection is manual after install

you need to enable the dhcpcd service after you install it, as with every service you install on arch linux.

As the installation guide says: "Complete the network configuration for the newly installed environment, that may include installing suitable network management software. "
