USB Hub

Post by Robots86 » Tue May 17, 2016 2:44 pm

Can anyone recommend me a hub? Ive tried 2 and they don't work.

This OTG won't even recognise my keyboard which is fine with a micro USB adapter.

Thanks

I might give this similar one a try. I found it recommended on the rpi forums and i can see someone commenting on amazon confirming that it works.

I've got that one and can confirm it works great. I've got a WiFi dongle, keyboard dongle and USB sound card plugged in and everything is working together. I haven't tried using the little toggle to allow you supply power. I took the case off and it's very tiny inside, much smaller than the one that wermy lists in his parts list.

I have this this one: http://www.amazon.com/kenable-Port-Powe ... B00LK5I8N0
It's not the smallest, but it works quite well for what it is.
I'm going to be using this one in a guide that I'll make when I get the rest of the parts. :)

Interesting. The only problem with mine so far is that the pads for the cable came off when I used a desoldering pump, but it was easily fixed. :)

Here's the inside of that one if you're curious. I cut the fourth plug off the bottom left there, that was the mini-USB input:
