I know this is a n00b question, but I do not have my pi yet but should be getting delivered today!
I am wanting to get a hub for my Pi and ideally would like to power it off the hub. I have a 7 port powered hub, but it is a cheapo one (looks just like this http://dx.com/p/powered-usb-7-port-hub- ... 40?item=66) and do not know how much power it supplies, so first Q is how to test it?
2nd, if I got a powered hub, I am assuming I would have 2 connections to the RPi from it correct? The one off the hub to the micro usb port on the Pi, and one from the Pi usb port to the input of the hub. Is that correct?
The devices I would be putting on the hub would be the Edimax wifi adapter, usb HDD (it is powered with an adapter not off usb), possibly a bluetooth adapter, and possibly a game controller eventually.
Thanks for the help!
