Awesome, thanks a million for the link. That should be apart of anyone’s Rpi setup guides. I can confirm it works with my mobile device hotspot. However, I am still getting issues connecting it to my home WiFi. I don’t believe we have MAC filtering enabled since my friends can connect to the router. It seems to be hanging up when trying to retrieve an IP.
Update: Authentication issues I’m currently at that stage. Still experiencing WiFi issues. I tried a fresh install of Retropie 2.6 on my Rpi2, installed the drivers. Failed with wicd-curses. I’m open to suggestions.
