Connection Problems After Fresh Install

This is my first time installing Arch.
In the live environment the internet was working just fine.
When I finished the installation I installed NetworkManager as well
After I rebooted my connection was gone

When I do "ip link" both the ethernet and the wireless interface were set to "UP" but instead of saying "Broadcast" it says "NO-CARRIER"

when I set wlp2s0 to down it goes back to "BROADCAST"

What might be the reasons for this?

Your network connection settings are not carried over, you need to configure NetworkManager on the host itself.

Another possibility is that  the NetworkManager service has not been started. I propose to check the status of NetworkManager service.

systemctl status NetworkManager

Re: Connection Problems After Fresh Install

First, you need to enable the NetworkManager service (Its disabled by default when you are installing it):

sudo systemctl enable NetworkManager
sudo systemctl start NetworkManager #To start it in case you want to test it right now without having to reboot your computer.

Then you need to connect to a WiFI SSID in order to use the internet: Network Manager Usage

You can also install some Additional Interfaces in order to use Network Manager from a UI.
