Wifi not working on archlinux

Hello,

I recently installed Archlinux on my laptop. I installed KDE plasma on it. now i have issues when trying to connect to Wifi. When i stop NetworkManager and try to connect with wifi-menu it works. when i enable NetworkManager and try to connect to the same wifi network via the KDE GUI it stops on "configuring network" and never connect. i can see the network on de GUI but can't connect to it.

What are the necessary utilities/services that are needed by Arch to connect to WIFI ?

I installed wpa-supplicant networkmanager dhcpcd net-tools iw netctl, can two or more of these utilities be in conflict?

what should i do to solve the problem?

Thanks for help

Re: Wifi not working on archlinux

Sounds like you have both netctl and networkmanager systemd units enabled. That may be the problem, you can only have one network management setup running at a time.
