USB 2.0 Powered Hub - ID: 961 & wifi
I'm using a RaspberryPi Model B with Miniature WiFi (802.11b/g/n) Module (ID: 814) and the USB Powered Hub (ID 961), all purchased at adafruit.
Ever since I got it all, I haven't had any luck connecting wirelessly with Occidentalis 2.0. I had no problems at all using the NOOBS distro, but would prefer to use Occidentalis.
After troubleshooting for weeks, I've finally realized that the USB hub is the problem. If I plug the wifi dongle into the Hub, it doesn't connect. If both the hub and the wifi dongle are connected to the Pi, the Pi hangs on boot, keyboard sometimes does or does not work, and it doesn't connect. The only way I've gotten the Pi to connect wirelessly is to connect keyboard to Pi, connect mouse to keyboard, and Wifi to Pi directly. So the hub is totally unnecessary.
Have I done something incorrectly? If I can't use the hub that you guys recommended, it's kind of useless...? When I was running the NOOBS distro, I had the wifi and hub connected directly to the Pi, and keyboard and mouse connected to the hub and I didn't have any power issues at all. What's different between the two distros?
