Edimax Wifi Not Connecting
I have a wpa_supplicant.conf in place. It is also created by RetroPie-Setup, and I created it manually with wpa_passphrase. The dongle is able to scan networks but is not able to actually connect.
When I put the blacklist back in place 8192cu is loaded for me as well. But the driver fails to connect.

Here is the critical part of the wpa_supplicant log:

wlan1: CTRL-EVENT-SSID-TEMP-DISABLED id=0 ssid="My SSID" auth_failures=1 duration=10 reason=CONN_FAILED

Does is load any firmware for you? It does not for me

$ dmesg | grep firmware

Well I really wonder why the 8192cu apparently works better for the people at raspbian and you, but not for me at all. Are you using Kernel 4.14.34-v7+? I guess you are, since you are using your image.

The modprobe override is also a custom change in behavior. Linux upstream and other distros (Arch) obviously prefer rtl8192cu which also works for me.

Btw I used rpi-update (https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentatio...pdating.md) but since it changes the boot partition it breaks your customization and the controller input is not registered anymore. I wonder if there any instructions on how to apply the freeplay changes on top of RetroPie. Are the scripts in a git repo somewhere?

Edit: Found the repo, you linked it in another post https://github.com/TheFlav/Freeplay-Support

I guess I could try running https://github.com/TheFlav/Freeplay-Supp...install.sh after the rpi-update.
