internet for arch linux ARM

i am trying to get internet working for my raspberry pi running arch linux ARM, but i cannot figure outhow to connect it with my wifi dongle or a wired connectiong to another computer. Would i need to directly wire my ethernet into my router, or is there another solution that i can use?

You should use a wired connection from the Pi directly to your router. Why would you want to stick another computer in the way?

Play Bonny!

This will work with the wifi dongle attached:

# wifi-menu
Afterwards, ensure you enable the profile you created so systemd will bring it up at boot time:

# netctl enable YOURPROFILE
