Introducing The HubPiWI Blue.

The Pi Zero is a tiny $5 computer. It is very powerful; but without WiFi, Bluetooth, and any USB Ports it is not very useful.

The HubPiWI Blue is an add-on board for the Pi Zero containing Bluetooth, WiFi, and 3 USB ports. The best part is that there is no soldiering required. Just screw in 4 screws and your ready to roll.

The HubPiWI Blue is more cost effective and saves you from the hassle of buying components from different places.

That means you'll save $6.50! Impressive!

A less complicated setup...

No more wires getting in the way! And your 3 USB Ports are still vacant!

    Does HubPiWi blue work with the original Pi Zero (version 1.1 I think)???

    Here are directions for making the HubPiWi Blue work with the latest Raspian Stretch (April 08 2019, kernel 4.14):

    Basically you need to follow the directions found in the readme on this github page:
    https://github.com/lwfinger/rtl8723bu/

    The one thing that those directions leaves out is that you need to install the Raspberry Pi kernel headers first. (And you should update your Pi before that too).

    So here's the breakdown of how I got it to work:
    1) First fire up your pi and get it on the network by some other means than the HubPiWi Blue's wifi (it's not working, which is why you're even reading this in the first place). I used a spare Edimax EW-7811Un dongle I had lying around.) It doesn't matter how you do it, so long as you have Internet access on the Pi.
    2) Open a terminal window and run the updates for your Pi:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    3) Download and install the Raspberry Pi kernel headers:
    sudo apt-get install raspberrypi-kernel-headers
    4) Download the driver files from github:
    git clone https://github.com/lwfinger/rtl8723bu.git
    5) Change into the newly created rtl8723bu directory (note that's a lower-case L not a number 1 in the directory name):
    cd rtl8723bu
    6) By default this driver will create two wlan interfaces: one as an access point and one as a wireless client. You want to turn the double interface off. To do that, you have to edit the Makefile:
    nano Makefile
    7) Arrow the cursor down to about the 21st line of the file and place a # symbol in front of the line that reads:
    EXTRA_CFLAGS += -DCONFIG_CONCURRENT_MODE
    changing it to:
    #EXTRA_CFLAGS += -DCONFIG_CONCURRENT_MODE
    then hit Crtl-X to exit, hit Y if asked and enter to accept the existing filename.
    8) Now run the make command to compile the driver - this may take around a 1/2 hour to 40 minutes on a PiZero.
    make
    9) Run the make install command:
    sudo make install
    10) To be honest, I have no idea what this next command does, but run it anyway:
    sudo modprobe -v 8723bu
    11) Now you need to create a file telling your Pi to ignore the internal rtl8xxxu driver so it doesn't conflict with your shiny new driver:
    sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/50-rtl8xxxu.conf
    12) Enter in a single line, then Ctrl-X to exit, save, etc:
    blacklist rtl8xxxu
    13) Shutdown your raspberry pi and remove any other wifi dongles or however you connected to the internet before having the HubPiWi Blue working.
    14) Boot up your Pi and enjoy using the HubPiWi Blue!

    I post these directions here because I always forget where to find them and end up here when searching the web.

    Short version of my last comment:

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    sudo apt-get install raspberrypi-kernel-headers
    git clone https://github.com/lwfinger/rtl8723bu.git
    cd rtl8723bu
    nano Makefile

    Comment out the line that reads: EXTRA_CFLAGS += -DCONFIG_CONCURRENT_MODE

    make
    sudo make install
    sudo modprobe -v 8723bu
    sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/50-rtl8xxxu.conf

    Enter this single line in the file you're creating, then save it:
    blacklist rtl8xxxu

    Reboot your raspberry pi.
