    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


    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?

    – 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:
