RetroPie 4.1 and WiFi Adapter

Post by Lamanity » Sun Dec 04, 2016 4:12 am

Just finished assembling my game boy zero and installing RetroPie 4.1.

I'm trying to connect my WiFi adapter to my home network with no luck. I'm unable to see any WiFi networks. I verified my adapter is Linux compatible and its compatible with my WiFi WPA2 encryption. I tried entering my connection info into the Hidden Network option but no joy.

Do i need to modify some files or install a driver? This is my first build and I'm not too familiar with Linux so a link to a very helpful guide would be a huge help.
