This question gonna be a kindda n00b but I cannot be able find a reliable answer through google.
I own a netbook (Arch Linux). When I boot my system it always fails starting `network` service (which takes a long time before failing). And when the X Server starts then I manually connect to the internet. So in order to reduce boot time, i have removed network from DAEMONS in `/etc/rc.conf`, the system seems to work fine.
But I am still not sure what does this `network` service is responsible for, but I would like to know, so that I can use it if possible/needed.
$ sudo /etc/rc.d/network start
$ sudo /etc/rc.d/network restart
$ sudo /etc/rc.d/network stop
