DHCPCD 9.0.1-2 update issue

After the update of DHCPCD 8.1.7-1 to DHCPCD 9.0.1-2 I couldn’t reach my Linksys, no connexion anymore…

For now a downgrade is the solution :

sudo pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/dhcpcd-8.1.7-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst

An issue is already related to it :



I have the new version and not seeing a problem? Is this with your own router?

local/dhcpcd 9.0.1-2
    RFC2131 compliant DHCP client daemon

no issue here too

No issues here.
AT&T Pace wireless router Model 5268AC
Several wireless routers with DHCP disabled (acts as access points) connected to above.

Maybe a combination of packages are giving this?

No problems with my Linksys 1900 ACS.

Yep an old Linksys WRT54GS which is meraviglioso !
Never got any connexion problem before this update then the downgrade works well…

I also just enabled the testing repo for fun and downloaded the next kernel and whatever updates came through to see if it affected my Radeon but i think it must only be AMDGPU onboard. Seems to be working with no issue.

It seems that the issue reported UP is about the NM issue which is a different one, and they said :

  • unlikely to be fixed anytime soon

A new version dhcpcd 9.0.1-3 in testing…

Installed 9.0.1-3 and rebooted
No Ip Address

Downgraded to 9.0.1-2 and rebooted
No IP Address

Downgraded to 8.1.7-1 and rebooted
Got an IP address and name resolution

–> It seems to be fixed with 9.0.1-4 still in testing…


on virtualbox …

Which DHCPCD version are you using ?

Have you tried resetting your router?

Hi @ricklinux, yep sure, I do always this first…

I know it’s older but is there any firmware updates for it?

This version works for me:
$ dhcpcd --version
dhcpcd 9.0.1

What’s more, now I don’t have internet via Wi-Fi via modem and I’m using my phone to connect.

I don’t use the original firmware, I use an open source one that proposes more options…
I saw that a new vresion of dhcpcd 9.0.2-1 is on testing…

I have the version 9.0.1-2

@Resiliencia downgrade to dhcpcd 8.1.7-1 it works…in waitting 9.0.2-1 in testing !


Why can’t you just try the testing version?
