I can’t seem to connect to a wifi network. I have a TL-WN725N, and I am pretty sure I have successfully installed it – when I go to configure wifi via the retropie menu in Emulationstation, I do see wireless networks. However, if I select any of them, it will say it’s “Obtaining IP address” for some time, until it eventually quits trying.
The menu along the bottom gives the option of “Config”ing the connection, but the hot key next to it is “->” and I have no idea what key on my keyboard that is supposed to represent, so I can’t use it.
It won’t auto connect doing it that way – so better to use wpa wpa supplicant roaming feature. Put the file as it was before, and update retropie-setup – you will then find a wifi configuration tool under supplementary menu.
Well, it still has the exact same issue after following your directions. It will say it is connected, but lists itself as 0% (I assume that is signal strength?) I’m going to go out on a limb, and assume that it’s the adaptor, and that it’s probably not going to be worth the fight to make it work.
I do plan to get a new adaptor, but I have my brother visiting with his kids next week, and had hoped to have wireless working before they got here. This limits what they can do with it somewhat, but they should still be able to have some fun with it.
