Hello,

Does anybody know if this will work with the RPi 'B'

eBay item no. 280522733324

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/7-Port-USB-2- ... 415075370c

I bought a USB powered hub the other week, and can't get it to work.

Regards

These are Chinese dud's so cheaply made they cannot work! Avoid like the plague!

See this youtube video that disassembles the PSU from this very same hub, and shows how badly its made.

For a list of "problem hubs" (and good ones), see the R-PI wiki, here:
