MintyPi Lite Wifi Connection

Post by Atari_26 » Wed May 20, 2020 7:32 pm

So I got the parts to build a MintyPi Lite recently, put it together, flashed the micro sd card, and followed the tutorial on Youtube as closely as I could. However, I have had trouble connecting to my wifi. The MintyPi screen shows that it is not connected to the wifi yet the retropie's wifi screen seems to connect to the wifi. Either way, my computer can not detect it over the network and I'm lost on what I could do next.

I have seen on a previous topic that the raspberry pi zero w needs a wifi 2.4Ghz wifi connection, but I do not know how to set my wifi to this frequency.

A lot of routers combine the 2.4 and 5 GHz networks. Since you have an IP on retropie, you are connected. Use port 22 in Filezilla and not port 21. More info can be found in my signature.
