I've had a quick look at systemd-networkd, and I don't think it would be 
significantly different to set up than netctl in your case. I think the problem 
was one of theory: I don't know how much reading you've done, but you need 
to understand some theory of the networking stack, network interfaces, 
bridges etc... before you can make a sensible configuration. I think that's 
beyond the scope of the documentation for most of these tools, although it 
would certainly make sense for the wiki to document some common use-cases.
