In netcfg 2.5 the configuration options for auto wireless have changed. netcfg
2.5 rc1 is in [testing] currently. The new automatic connection has proper
roaming support and will prove more reliable than the old setup - particularly
with more complicated wireless configurations. To migrate to the new automatic
wireless setup: 1. pacman -S core/wpa_actiond 2. Set WIRELESS_INTERFACE="" to
your wireless interface in /etc/rc.conf. For example WIRELESS_INTERFACE="wlan0"
3. Add net-auto-wireless to your DAEMONS=() array. There are also some very
minor configuration changes that will only affect a small number, these are
