Hi i am trying to connect to the internet with arch but i really cant.
im using a router and dhcp, this is my rc.conf networking part:
gateway="default gw 192.168.200.254"
DAEMONS=(syslogd klogd !pcmcia network netfs crond)
i got the drivers, 8139too, installed through modprobe,
an alias in modules.conf,
and when running ifconfig eth0 up i get nothing returned so i thing it is working
i also tried the command dhcpcd and it says that it is already running
Then when i do a pacman -sy pacman i get nothing
what should i do?
Thanks a lot in advance Daniel
returns nothing? if thats the case than something is wrong
have you tried modprobing the drivers after boot to make sure theyre loading? And are you sure you have your aliases defined right?

How about putting your modules (8139) in rc.conf ?
ping -c 3 www.google.com ?
Search forum for post on dhcp there are many !
i think he meant that
ifconfig eth0 up
didn't show anything. & then after that if you do
you can see what is working & what not.
