I installed base Arch on one of my hard drives (other has debian) by ftp without a problem. When I went to install further packages on reboot (and dhcpcd) pacman worked with no problem then after a very short period stopped mid download. My ethernet card is shown in lspci and lsmod and ifconfig show the eth0. dhcpcd appears to be running but when I ctrl c out of pacman I cannot ping isp.
I've searched and noticed others have same problem but I never see a solution.
