Iwctl cant find any networks, Booting archiso makes network not work

So i have windows 10 home on my computer right now but i wanted to change to arch

I downloaded the iso and flashed it onto a usb and booted it up, then i ran these to check for networks nearby:
iwctl station wlan0 scan
iwctl station wlan0 get-networks

And it didnt find any networks
"No networks available"


And when i booted into windows 10 i got the same thing, and if i did ipconfig it says "media disonnected" on every network device

But after a network reset and unplugging and plugging in my computer i got the network working again, but as fast as i boot the archiso the network stops working which makes so i cant download arch

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Have you disabled Windows fast-start?


No, it didn't "fix" anything. It just shifted the brokeness one space to the right. - jasonwryan

Nowadays I use Network Manager, however, for some reason or another every time I had to connect to the internet while using Iwctl, I would have to start the dhcpcd service or it wouldn't work. I think it is worth a shot.


Always backup important files when editing it.
