How do I connect to the Internet in i3wm?

I just installed i3-gaps and I can’t connect to the internet, since there’s no GUI option to do it and I don’t know how to connect through the CLI. Is there a way to connect to the internet automatically? KDE Plasma is also on this machine and WiFi works there.

You can use the Network Manager applet for this. Install it first:
sudo pacman -Suy network-manager-applet

then add to your i3 config:
exec --no-startup-id nm-applet

and reset settings. You will get clickable applet in the status bar that allows to configure a network with GUI.
