Connect to Nokia Lumia 800C Hotspot from Archlinux

When tried connecting my Lumia 800C, always got an “DHCP IP lease attempt failed” error.

To solve this problem, add a DHCP_TIMEOUT option to the configuration file generated by wifi-menu.

File /etc/network.d/wlan0-Nokia 800C_9864:

CONNECTION=’wireless’
DESCRIPTION=’Automatically generated profile by wifi-menu’
INTERFACE=’wlan0′
SECURITY=’wpa’
ESSID=Nokia\ 800C_9864
IP=’dhcp’
DHCP_TIMEOUT=30
KEY=12345678
