Trying to install Arch got to the point of installing grub.  That went well rebooted and now i'm unable to configure WiFi using WiFi-menu.  Tried using iwconfig to connect that didn't work iw "device name" connect "network name" went through but its not giving me an option to enter my key its a WEP2 any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Unable to use RTL8188CE

Please chose a meaningful title - your installation was successful.  Also, I don't see the purpose of the introduction about grub - that is not relevant to the question.

For the wireless issue, have you followed the wireless page on the wiki?  What are the actual commands you are issuing?  With `iw` the key is entered on the same line as the essid.

Re: Unable to use RTL8188CE

i used grub as the point of the reference in the installation guide so you could see what steps i did during installation. I tried ip link set "xxxx" up and than tried to do wifi-menu to no success after the reboot it gives me wifi-menu command not found. than i tried iw "xxxx" connect "xxxx" key "xxxxxx" didn't connect i know that the card is working because when i do iw dev xxxx scan | less i can see the access points. the card is RTL8188CE i've been looking through the forums to no avail.  any help would be greatly appreciated
