I assume that (as well as changing ISPs) you have changed your router and it has a different internal range to the old one.

If you have an IP address automatically after booting then something is bringing up the network automatically. Assuming 
your Arch install is newer than 2013 then I would expect you've configured netctl to manage the interface.

Look in /etc/netctl


$ systemctl list-unit-files --state=enabled
