up and down arrow keys until you land on activate network,
up and down arrow keys again,
If you find your network, hit enter, then type password.
wait and you should be offered a choice to deactivate your network.
Down arrow onto quit and hit enter.
Then test your connection
ping -a -c 5 www.google.com <enter>
If you hear five beeps and have a bunch of packet information up on your
screen your network is up.
Failing that as sudo or root
wifi-menu -o <enter>
up and down arrow keys until you are on your network and connection
speed you want, then hit enter, then type password then hit enter.
If your command prompt comes back with no complaints you can do the next
netctl list <enter>
netctl enable your network name <enter>.
No complaints, your network should be up and running so test to make
sure with that ping command I wrote earlier.
I hope this helps.
