I wouldn’t mess with static settings, personally. I’d let the router use DHCP to identify and configure it and then if you want you can just have the router assign it a static IP once you’ve got connectivity. Even easier, go into raspi-config and set it up to advertise itself on the network as “retropie”. Then when I’m home I can just ssh pi@retropie and be on there no problem.

Also that’s a pretty generic name for a wifi adapter… do you have an actual model number? The lsusb command should list out what you’ve got plugged into USB. Might be helpful to make sure that it’s supported on RPi and that you don’t need any additional drivers or anything.
