Arch install failed for lack of internet connectivity.


Hi: I tried to install the image archlinux-2018.02.01-x86_64.iso to disk but I could not connect to the Internet. Once I booted the image I was logged in as root user. Then I did 'ping archlinux.org' as pointed out in the Arch Wiki but the name could not be resolved. Then I did:
Code:
# dmesg|grep iwlwifi
[the driver that understands the wifi controller on this notebook]
        loaded firmware version 19.... op-mode iwlmvm
        wlp2s0: renamed from wlan0
# modprobe iwlmvm
# ip link show dev wlp2s0
2: wlp2s0: <BROADCAST, MULTICAST> mtu 1500
        qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN mode DEFAULT ...
        link/ether b4:34:83:48       brf: ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
So wlp2s0 was not up. Any suggestions?

bring up wlp2s0, establish your link to a valid IP then try again. arch how to bring up wifi, google.

Arch says,
