    I’m trying to get wifi to work on a rpi2 with just retropie. So far this is what I did was edit
    sudo nano /ect/network/interfaces

    To

    auto lo

    Iface lo inet loopback
    Iface eth0 inet dhcp

    Allow-hotplug wlan0
    Auto wlan0
    Iface wlan0 inet dhcp
    Wpa-ssid “my network name”
    Wpa-psk “my password”

    this does not seem to be working any ideas?

    A couple things to check-

    -WiFi dongle compatibility:
    http://elinux.org/RPi_USB_Wi-Fi_Adapters
    – case sensitivity: make sure that everything is the right lower and uppercase values
    – did you reboot? Changes won’t take effect until you either restart network services or reboot your pi.

    See this video for a step by step setup:

    sudo nano /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf 
    
    Go to the bottom of the file and add the following:
    
    network={
        ssid="hostname"
        psk="Your_wifi_password"
    }
