Dhcpcd 4.0 issue in Gentoo solved

My computer had an issue acquiring an IP address from my router once I had dhcpcd 4.0.2 installed (though this could affect all 4.0 versions). It would reject a given IP address and grab one from some other range and I could not connect to the Internet at all.

I went back to version 3 while I got the issue troubleshooted at the Gentoo Forums.

It looks like the main culprit was /etc/dhcpcd.duid (there was no duid keyword in dhcpcd.conf), so I removed it and everything works again.
