I've bought a compatible wifi dongle and I can't connect to my wifi



  • Hi, first of all, sorry for my English. I've bought the Edimax EW-7811UN because is listed in the Recalbox manual as a Compatible Wifi Dongle, and I'm unable to connect my recalbox to my wifi. In EmulationStation I've setup the network settings with my SSID and wifi password, I've obiously enabled the wifi too, but it doesn't connect. My recalbox.conf seems to be ok: ... # ------------ B - Network ------------ # ## Set system hostname system.hostname=RECALBOX ## Activate wifi (0,1) wifi.enabled=1 ## Wifi SSID (string) wifi.ssid=myssid ## Wifi KEY (string) wifi.key=mypassword ## Samba share system.samba.enabled=1 ### Virtual Gamepads system.virtual-gamepads.enabled=1 ### SSH system.ssh.enabled=1 ...   My SSID and password are lowercase, with no spaces or special characters. My router has a WEP password, and I would like to preserve it this way because the rest of the devices in my house are working with this setting. I would like to use the wifi connection for the scrapes and for Kodi. Any ideas of how can I connect? Thanks in advance.



  • I have same issue. My device is EW-7811UTC alias AC600, working in openelec and raspbian after install drivers. In addition my game pad thrustmaster T-wireless not work with recalbox and i cant control the frontend. Game pad work in raspbian and retropie. My raspberry pi is connected to TV via hdmi in salon, but my router is in my room, i dont have usb keyboard or other screen with hdmi. So, i have two issues, wifi and gamepad.



  • Do I have to install the drivers manually? How do i do that?

  • @am2: is your wifi network invisible? because recalbox can't connect if your wifi is invisible.



  • The ssid is visible



  • up!



  • Not help? I think that i need a right drivers compilation to recalbox.
