Re: USB Host to WiFi using RPI Zero

Your guess is correct....In a perfect world I would like to plug a Pi zeroW into a piece of test equipment and communicate with it over WiFi instead of a tethered USB.

USB Host to WiFi using RPI Zero

Can someone tell me if the RPI Zero has an OTG USB on it? I would like to connect my USB peripheral devices to it and then wirelessly transmit data using 802.11...effectively replacing a wired USB connection to hub/computer....

Thanks
Steve
