I need this one, plz PM me if available.. Thanksdigger72 wrote: ↑Thu Feb 01, 2018 3:33 pmThis sale is for HubPiWi Blue - a 3 Port USB hub plus Integrated Wifi and Bluetooth. With the launch of the Pi Zero W, the Wifi and BT functions have become redundant, but I am left with an inventory of about 150 or so. For $5 you get a nice 3 Port USB hub that connects only using 4 provided screws. Similar products sell for at least $9.

I just wanted to let everyone know that the board is still in stock and can be purchased from http://referencedesigner.com/blog/get-h ... blue/6506/
Frankly with the launch of the Raspberry Pi Zero the Wifi and Bluetooth support provided by HubPiWi Blue has become redundant. There is no support in the main line software for the HubPi Wi Blue, but integrating the driver support is not a great deal - just take a bit of time.
Thanks for reporting back about it. I still have many of those left in my stock, in case any one wants it - http://referencedesigner.com/blog/get-h ... blue/6506/fanoush wrote: ↑Mon May 14, 2018 6:46 amMy two hubs finally arrived on Friday last week and both work fine with driver from https://github.com/lwfinger/rtl8723bu , thanks digger72.
Compiling wifi/bt driver directly on the pi zero takes more than half an hour, though. And getting raspberrypi-kernel-headers took some time too. And I had to boot the sdcard in Pi Zero W to get the driver and then switch to plain Zero. I did not copile the rtl8723au_bt bluetooth driver, yet it seem to work somehow after getting the wifi driver working.
BTW I also considered 4 port zero hubs from http://www.uugear.com/store/ but this one was slightly cheaper and I wanted wifi.
