Can't get an IP

Hello everyone!

I just installed Archlinux on my Netbook and noticed a little issue:

When I sit next to my router, I get an IP without any problems. But in my room (2 floors above the router) I don't get an IP. It just says: dhcpcd failed.

Normally I would accept that, because I have a signal quality around 40- 50% in that room but the distro I used before (elementary os) was able to get an IP adress without any problems.
So I have the following question:
Did I configure anything wrong or does elementary os use another program to get an IP adress?

Thanks in advance,
TheRatze94

How would we know? You haven't shared any configs or told us what program you use...

You could try dhclient if dhcpcd dose not work
