    Hi,

    SMB sharing is working ok via ethernet. Is there a way to get it to work via Wifi?
    When I use Wifi I can ping the Pi from my PC but I cannot get SMB share to work.
    I just get the error that the share is not available.

    Assuming you didn’t update anything, on a fresh retropie 3.6 install, the Pi 3’s wifi drops after a while due to a bug with power management. Give this a try first before anything else;

    sudo iwconfig wlan0 power off

    Hi,

    Thanks for replying.

    when you say assuming you didn’t update anything.
    what do you mean ? retro pie itself or raspian?
    is there a way to keep retropie upto date with stable releases from the pi itself?

    meaning raspbian. apparently the newest updates to raspbian already has wifi power mngmt off by default, so if you have had updated it would mean your wifi issues are something else altogether.

    keeping retropie itself updated, the conventional way is through the setup script accessed from the retropie menu in ES or from the terminal with sudo ./retropie_setup.sh and doing a binary or source update. not sure if the wifi “fix” is in them.
