[solved] netctl authentication failed

Hi there

I'm new to arch, and try to setup the basic install but I'm already stuck at the Wifi setup.
I followed the installation wiki until connecting to wireless Network
Then i followed the Network page until to WPA2 Personal
I chose netctl as a Network Manager and followed the Netctl page
When I want to start my profile:

# netctl start wireless-wpa

Job for netctl@wireless\x2dwpa.service failed because the control process exited with error code.

I tried the tips in the troubleshooting chapter
# ip link set wlan0 down
# netctl start wlan0-ssid

and added

ForceConnect=yes

to /etc/netctl/wireless-wpa
but it didn't help

# journalctl -xi (only red errors)

: WPA association/authentication failed for interface 'wlan0'
: Failed to bring the network up for profile 'wireless-wpa'
: Failed to start A simple WPA encrypted wireless connection

# systemctl list-unit-files --state=enabled

 UNIT FILE STATE
autovt@.service enabled
choose-mirror.service enabled
getty@.service enabled
netctl.service enabled
pacman-init.service enabled
remote-fs.target enabled

#ip a

3: wlan0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST> >  mtu 1500 qdisc mq state DOWN group default qlen 1000
link/ether [...] brd [...]

#ip r


# ping 8.8.8.8

ping: connect: Network is unreachable

Any Ideas?
Thanks a lot
Giuseppe

Don't do that. I take it the ip r command produced no output at all?

The standard advice at this stage is to follow the manual connection procedure detailed on the ArchWiki Wireless page and post any errors. But I don't use netctl so I may have missed something obvious (sorry).

Thx for this one!

I disabled netctl and removed the corresponding Profile

# netctl disable profile
# systemctl disable netctl
# rm netctl/examples/wireless-wpa

And proceded with WPA Supplicant,
then got a IP when I continued with Dhcpcd

Wifi is working now.

Thank you Head_on_a_Stick for your help
Giuseppe
