Problems getting network address via wireless

Hello there,

I tried for two straight days to fix my wireless connection with Manjaro 16.06 and googled a lot. Though nothing i tried resolved my problem. I really hope someone is able to explain me what is actually happening behind the scenes...

System: Windows - Manjaro Dual Boot (Wireless works without problems under Windows)
Manjaro 16.06 XFCE

Output from ip link:

1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 65536 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN mode DEFAULT group default qlen 1 link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00 2: enp4s0f2: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc fq_codel state UP mode DEFAULT group default qlen 1000 link/ether --:--:--:--:--:-- brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff 3: wlp3s0: <NO-CARRIER,BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP> mtu 1500 qdisc mq state DOWN mode DORMANT group default qlen 1000 link/ether --:--:--:--:--:-- brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
(removed mac-addresses)
