    Raspberry Pi3B+

    Looking for a raspberry Pi3B+ kit ... or just the Pi case and power supply ... I have a Pi3B+ ...but the WI FI is not working.


    I am also looking for a Pi 4 kit

    I have tried RS components (who are the cheapest) but out of stock.

    I was hoping someone had a few extras they wanted to unload for a fair price.

    RS components is the most reasonably priced ... mantech are probably buying from RS and putting a markup like everyone else.

    NO stock available anywhere in SA ... the one place I can get one ... they have marked up the price by R500.

    They say there is a shortage world wide ... stocks will only be available April 2022.

    Are you sure it is the wifi not working and not something to do with your configuration of the pi? What OS do you have on it.

    Try running these commands
    sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
    sudo ifdown wlan0
    sudo ifup wlan0

    it can also because by a bad sd card. Try install on another card. Also try install a different OS like puppy linux
