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 https://goo.gl/3kWBPz 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.

I used this, found it in retropie forum:

network setup

sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces

auto lo

iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet dhcp

allow-hotplug wlan0
auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
wpa-ssid "NETWORK_NAME"
wpa-psk "NETWORK_PASSWORD"

wireless-power off
