wifi issue seems to be related to dhcp, when i assign static ip wifi gets connected.
The reason can be because your router is not set up as a DHCP server ...
it's set as dhcp, now after installing dhcpcd wifi gets connected with auto ip.
No offense, but this thread is next to useless without some details. What kernel, desktop , and network adapter are you using. If you want help on the forum you need to learn how to provide the proper information on a help request.
Please post the output of the following commands:
hwinfo --netcard --wlan --bluetooth | grep -Ei "model\:|driver\:|status\:|cmd\:|file\:|detected\:" | grep -v "Config Status"
Please post the input/outputs of all requested commands via the terminal as text, (not as pics).
Information on how to properly post hardware specs and logs:
Please format any terminal output with three backticks before and after, as shown in this picture:
sorry @tbg, output as below:

Thank you for posting your outputs.
In all honesty I'm surprised your wifi adapter is working at all. Which driver are you using. Is it the broadcom-wl, or did you uninstall that driver? You have a problematic adapter/driver installed.
Here is some further info:
@tbg, not able to remove driver?
[jaroZ dhiab]# pacman -Rns broadcom-wl
error: target not found: broadcom-wl
[jaroZ dhiab]# pacman -Rns bcma-pci-bridge
error: target not found: bcma-pci-bridge
[jaroZ dhiab]# pacman -Qe |grep broad
If you have uninstalled the broadcom-wl driver already (or it was never installed) then I would leave it the way it is for now. If it stops working follow the directions to install the linux headers and the broadcom-wl-dkms driver.
maybe was never installed. i'll leave it as it is while it works fine.
thanks @tbg, issue can be closed.
