DHCPCD is a DHCP client program to automatically fill in network settings for interfaces connecting to a network.

Installation

# emerge net-misc/dhcpcd
When using wpa_supplicant, 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.

Wpa_supplicant will now be able to connect to a network.
