    Thank you
    My issue was more complex, after kernel update it tried unexisting version of firmware. With renaming and coppying I managed to load older driver, but still netctl was failing. Folowing your steps, removed old leases profiles and so on, but still netctl was complaining that interface is already up. So just set it down and tried to start netctl again and it worked!

    Cheers man,
    Where most others posts/articles/etc were incomplete,
    you have been able to provide a clear and exhaustive solution that worked.
    Many thanks

    Thankyou sir. Your blog solved two problems for me. First, job for netctl… And second, Pacman could not resolve host. Thankyou very much sir. 🙂
