  1. It should do yes but each additional connector/adapter will add db's of loss to the system. if you look into the EIRP calculations loss can have an impact on total system performance. example online calculator (there are many) http://www.air-stream.org.au/technical-references/effective-isotropic-radiated-power-eirp
  2. Dont know the reasons behind the selection but I for one like USB A on the nano, I find it very flexible accommodating old and new kit. Maybe that’s the reason - for maximum backwards comparability.
  3. Although not 100% required for everything you will get more out of it by giving it internet access. You can plug it into a PC and share your internet access using the wp6 script. Or you can use one of the nano's radios (usually wlan1) in client mode. but this limits your capabilities when using the nano for certain tasks. Or you can plug in wifi dongle into the nanos usb port as a 3rd radio (also in client mode) which gives you full functionality but means you cant plug anything else into the NANO. Also some 3g/4g modems work well plugged into the nano's USB port giving a very mobile solution that leaves the radios free but again ties up the USB port. Each have advantages under different circumstances, so depends what your doing. Not to mention access to modules and updates. Hope this helps.
  4. Make sure the first line of your script reads: #!/bin/sh /etc/rc.common Copy your script to the /etc/init.d/ directory Make sure the execute bit is on chmod +x /etc/init.d/<your script> Enable your script /etc/init.d/<your script> enable Your script should now have a symlink in /etc/rc.d/ ls -lh /etc/rc.d | grep <your script> Confirm your init script is enabled: /etc/init.d/<your script> enabled && echo on If this command returns on, then you're all set. If this command doesn't return anything, then your script isn't enabled. Here you will find more information about booting http://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/techref/process.boot
  5. To start, thank you for even looking at this I know this is most likely a stupid question to you. I found some code on github written in PHP. It that allows control of a Huawei-HiLink USB modem via web API not using serial. https://github.com/BlackyPanther/Huawei-HiLink If you look you see there is a index.php with a class.php. I very crudely tried to put the index.php into the module maker module.html and positioned the class.php both in the module root and api directory (wasn’t sure). All I was getting was text (from the index.php file) output. I'm so far out of my depth im surprised I got that much out of it without breaking more, but tried it on the off chance it would work. Is it a case of having to understand the full php contents enough to rewrite it into proper module.html? if so I'm tapping out and it has to become a feature request for the official modem manager module. either way cheers for your time. Update - php5-cli Read online that a development server can be run direct from php. I tried on the pineapple but so far I haven’t been able to get it to completely work. To install opkg install php5-cli and to run use the below changing port if required. php -S I can get it to run but to get those PHP files to run on the pineapple it was missing a couple of php5-mod files. One being simplexml and when I installed it I lost part of the pineapple dashboard, even after reboot and a shutdown. I think I'm at a dead end with this so I add it here in name of sharing information. Maybe someone else could find is useful
  6. as root on your pineapple? just tested on mine and changes are saved. something not right if root is denied.
  7. Im not 100% sure but apparently it can cause damage over time, something to do with reflected waves that can add to the transmitted waves and then overload the output stage over time. some circuits monitor and protect but not all. It's just a thought but may be your problem.
  8. As far as i know it's not a good idea to power up a radio without a load (antenna) attached as it can damage it. You may have damaged your NANO by doing that.
  9. I’m also interested in being able to do something very similar to this. I found an app using a php file but would like to make it into a html file with the hope of being able to build a basic pineapple module. Any guidance very welcome. edit - is it as simple as embedding the php into a html doc? like here edit the edit - no, embedding didn’t seem to work at all :) I used @Foxtrot module maker and tried embedding the php into the html and I failed miserably lol
  10. just to clarify - you can turn off pc/laptop wifi and unplug lan cable if applicable. Plug in nano with reset button held for ~10s, wait for windows to set up network over usb - then set up that network config with ipv4 address of with - in recovery mode the nano will be on once up - that’s if the nano can boot up to uboot recovery - browse to and you should see a page similar to this pic if you cant get to uboot recovery web page then you may have bricked it or still have network issues. might also be worth trying using a linux machine as some people have reported windows can be funny. good luck.
  11. maybe try editing /etc/config/network
  12. did you already try a firmware recovery? https://wifipineapple.github.io/wifipineapple-wiki/#!troubleshooting.md
  13. "To know your Enemy, you must become your Enemy" Sun Tzu. Looks tough - this is what your up against. http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/docs/wireless-mobility/wireless-lan-wlan/70987-rogue-detect.html Also there is an open source application available doing a similar task here https://github.com/moha99sa/EvilAP_Defender/wiki I wonder if it would run on a pineapple :)
  14. Sounds like a bit of wifite/wifite2(5ghz) and/or besside-ng with an auto start and a few extra features. Man I miss those MK5 dip switches sometimes. interested in how this goes. cheers
