Hello everybody,

I definitely like Arch a lot :) 

I have just encountered a small difficulty. I usually switch between three different places with my laptop. All places (let's call them home, work1 and work2) are in DHCP. work1 and work2 are on the same subnetwork.

wicd is able to get an IP from home and work1, not work2. After a few attempts from the technical support, it appears that from work2, the port/DHCP server (?) takes a too long time to answer, and the impatient little wicd erroneously concludes it cannot get any IP. So, for me, they have modified the parameters of the port, and now everything is working fine. Everything's OK with other distribs (openSUSE, Fedora and Mandriva) with default parameters.

But I still find that quite strange. As I am not sure this is due to the pre-settings of CTKArch, Arch, wicd or... anything else, I am posting here.

What could be the parameter(s) involved, and where is(are) it(they) hidden? I don't want to break anything now that everything seems to work, but I am very curious (and after all, that's the reason why I have switched to Arch  ;)  ). Thank you!

That's either dhcpcd or wicd's parameters, I left them unchanged.
