Manual connection is not needed at all
you must select ENABLE from RetroPie - RetrOrangePi - Wifi submenu
then you select CONNECT, then Activate a connection
Available access point should appear listed

Hi Alexkidd,

Thanks for the guid, I tried activate a connection after click on enable. The activate menu only show wire connection. That is the problem why I manually input the wifi detail at the beginning. Could you see what I have done wrong?

if you choose Enable, then Connect , your access point is not being found (maybe it's too far away) and there is nothing we can do

The router is next to me .. I have been connecting it via Ethernet cable for transferring files across from my computer. I do have other raspberry pi console and have no issue with wifi connection.. I thought retrostone would be same..

you're the only one with such issue, so i recommend you to reflash the image, following the Readme1st thread and the bugfix from Feb 5
Maybe its a hardware issue and your wifi module isn't working

I think I will wait for the new firmware to out before flash it. As I mentioned before I am connecting it with ethernet cable for files transfer. It not a big issue. Thanks anyway

He's not the only one. This is my experience:

I initially set up my Retrostone 2 using whatever the latest version was a few weeks ago. Got wifi working fine using the terminal, as instructed. A day or two later, SNES stopped working and I couldn't figure out how to fix it. Because I knew that everything is a work in progress, I put it down and decided to wait for bug fixes. So today I installed the latest release and began to set it up the same way.

After adding a connection for my network (the same network as before), if I go into "Activiate a connection," the wifi connection I set up simply is not there. If I go back into "Edit a connection," it appears. So I can edit the wifi connectiont that I created but I am unable to activiate it.

Incidentally, after doing this, I went back to the desktop. From the network settings I can see the wifi connection that I set up through the retropiemenu, but it's as if the wifi card isn't there. It doesn't try to connect, and I am unable to activate it from the desktop.

I don't have anything else to add, other than to reiterate that he isn't the only one experiencing this problem... and I got it to work under a previous version, so I have at least some idea of what I'm doing.

A video would be helpful to evaluate a failed step somehow
I'll just enforce this one more time , wifi is disabled when launching emulationstation and it has to be enabled in the proper menu as per instructed

Is it possible to define a hotkey combination like pressing both keys L1+L2 (on the back of the RS2) for enabling/disabling wifi from within the EmuStation Menu?
