dhcpcd is part of system set and present in all Funtoo stages. It can be a very good dhcp client for simple, automatically assigned wired and wireless connections.

service start-up

Add dhcpcd to the default runlevel

# rc-update add dhcpcd default

and then start dhcpcd by updating the runlevels and launching anything not already started with

# rc
or
# /etc/init.d/dhcpcd start

to start dhcpcd specifically.

For simple dhcp configurations it is sufficient for getting network connection. More advanced settings are described in corresponding dhcpcd and dhcpcd.conf man pages.
