Raspberry Pi WIFI under Arch Linux


I haven’t seen an updated tutorial on how to get Wireless working with Arch Linux.  So, here is the latest information.  It is actually in the loader if you used NOOBS.  But, a quick search on the web turned few results.

I used the EDIMAX 150Mbps Wireless 802.11b/g/n nano USB Adapter. It was only $10 and works great!

With a fresh install you can do the following:


You should see the following output:


To enable wifi at boot-time issue the following command:

systemctl enable netctl-auto@wlan0

Don’t forget to update your system when you get a chance with:

pacman -Syu

Hope this quick reference helps.
