If you want to update just one package in Arch Linux, do the following (please note that # indicates that the command should be run as root) 1) Search the package's name with $ pacman -Ss keyword (it prints out here the package's name and other stuff) 2) Run the following command to get the package's URI # pacman -Syup | grep package's_name ...

While the question has been answered, I must add that the client daemon is called dhcpcd, not dhcpd (dhcpd is the DHCP server daemon). I spent twenty minutes trying to figure out why that was happening, and it was all because of a simple typo.

To be pragmatic, a solution might be to chop off the 3.5mm plug of a pair of headphones and plug it in to the laptop when silence is desired!

I know this question is kind of old, but for the next ones who will have this problem, this could save them some time: There is a special hostapd package in the AUR named hostapd-8188eu which works perfectly with the TL-WN725N V2 device.
