  1. Switch's not Working?

    Was your BB working correctly before your firmware update? Are you sure you properly setup your payload? If the payload is not correctly placed in the switch1 folder it can at times just open the usb file system if not correctly setup. Also if your payload requires any of the tools and you have not installed them it will not function properly. Tools install: https://forums.hak5.org/topic/40971-info-tools/
  2. AWUS036NH on Raspberry Pi - Kali 2017.1

    I have done some light searching on github with no luck. Probably do some more looking there later on today. Probably will ping him on twitter and hope for a solution. The ath9k driver is working so far flawlessly on another alfa adapter. Thanks!
  3. AWUS036NH on Raspberry Pi - Kali 2017.1

    @digip thanks for the great info! I have looked at the Re4son kernel previously for some of the other benefits that come with it, especially CPU performance increase. I did go ahead and install to see if it would fix the AWUS036NH issues. It did not fix the issues with seeing clients and capturing handshakes. Hopefully there will be support in the near future.
  4. I am having some trouble with the Alfa AWUS036NH. When connected to a raspberry pi 3 with kali 2017.1 it will not capture handshakes as well as not showing associated clients. The adapter can find APs but that is all. airmon-ng is showing the adapter running driver rt2800usb. I have tried "airmon-ng check kill" prior to monitor mode with no luck. Also have tried "apt-get install firmware-misc-nonfree" which is supposed to help with rt2800usb issues on a rt3070 chip. I have tried using the adapter on a full install kali x64 2017.1 machine install and all appears to be working plug and play. I have searched the raspberry pi, kali, and aircrack forums but have yet to find anything with a working solution. (most threads were dead before solution was posted) Any help with this issue is greatly appreciated!
  5. Airodump-ng Filtering Questions

    @digip thanks for the response. I am familiar with the options you are talking about. I just wasn't sure if there was a way to exclude with a rule so if you were to run airodump-ng to scan for APs you would not see familiar/non-target APs. Not really something that is required/needed, was just curious.
  6. Airodump-ng Filtering Questions

    Is there a way to have a permanent filter in airodump-ng for a mac address? For example to prevent it from finding your own AP. Something similar to the kismet option filter_tracker=ANY(!"MAC") I'm sure I have just over looked it in the documentation. Thanks in advance!

    Just depends on your setup preference. One way would be to buy two xbee wifi modules, one USB breakout for connection to a base station computer, and then whatever you mobile "pocket sized" hardware would be. One mobile option being an arduino with xbee dev board. This option probably has the most documentation. Im not sure but I would think you could possibly use a raspberry pi as well. Just have to do some research on that topic. One thing you never stated is what kind of data you are looking to transmitter back to a base station? You said it would require 1 mbps but is it a particular app or data logged from a sensor? The reason I ask is this could really alter what your mobile main board requirements are. If it is sensor data then an arduino would probably fit the bill. But if it is something along the lines of a software application then you will have to pick something based on that apps running requirements.

    @PaPawGeek has some valid points in my opinion. @mgamache I am not completely sure on the xbee broadcasting ssid for I have not used them in the exact setup that we are talking about, but I do believe there is a to make it act as a hidden network. Now depending on your requirements this might still be an issue if your attacker was using something like aircrack-ng suite that can find hidden ssid networks. Like previously said, I think your best defense would be encryption. The xbee itself can implement WPA-PSK, WPA2-PSK and WEP. Also like you said app level encryption would be great if you know the rf will be possibly under attack. Like I said though, I have not used the modules in the exact configuration being discussed. I would do some testing out of curiosity but I don't currently have any xbee wifi modules on hand. Depending on your budget you could probably purchase all the hardware required between $100 - $150 for the xbee setup and do some actual testing. Some websites offer dev kits that come with modules, breakout boards, etc for a good price.

    I forgot to attach the link to this PDF that describes how to setup an ad hoc connection: http://ftp1.digi.com/support/documentation/90002124_K.pdf refer to page 29 of the manual. This would be a point to point connection between two xbee modules or you could also do an ad hoc connection with one xbee wifi module and a laptop with wifi card. Just have to configure your xbee and laptop card accordingly. Another option would be have a router at your base station with a private hidden network. This would allow you to have multiple portable units sending data back to the same base station. Im not sure if this would be out of your "no wifi" parameter but just another possible solution. Im sure there are plenty of other solutions out there. I just have been recommending the xbee due to the huge amount of documentation, tutorials, videos, etc that can help in setup and troubleshooting!

    I see. When you say "no wifi" do you mean as in a connection to a wifi network to tx/rx data or no wifi rf band? The wifi xbee offers data rates up to 72 mbps and can be used as a direct connection between two modules. Here is a basic setup guide: https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/xbee-wifi-hookup-guide?_ga=2.159357427.839007374.1501162703-1446297197.1501162703 You may want to directly refer to the "Communicating with Other XBees" part of the guide. This allows a direct point to point connection between two modules. This will only work though if the wifi frequency band is an option. Xbee is probably not an option if no wifi band is required.

    Have you considered using a Xbee and Arduino? May not be the most cost effective method but would allow simple setup and development. You can find several tutorials for setup and operation. It would be possible to have one for mobile "in a pocket" and another as a ground station hooked up to a computer. Here is a basic setup tutorial: https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/xbee-shield-hookup-guide Link to one of the many zigbee boards: http://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Digi-International/XB24CAUIT-001/?qs=%2FPVulymFwT182AEOKkqEXw%3D%3D&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIiJKXg86p1QIVl4izCh3arg7REAYYASABEgKVefD_BwE
  12. https://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/alfa.network/hornet-ub I have used this tutorial to fix bricked Mark IV. Openwrt will give you all the functionally and probably more that the stock firmware.
  13. Noaa Weather Satellite Images Antenna Help

    There are many options when it comes to satellite antennas. It will be hard to find a design that wont require at least soldering a connector or feed coax to the antenna. Here is a website with some great beginner info and links to diy antenna design. http://www.rtl-sdr.com/rtl-sdr-tutorial-receiving-noaa-weather-satellite-images/ I would also check ham radio websites for 2 meter satellite antenna designs. These may not be the best option but could be done with no soldering http://www.amateurradio.bz/4_dollar_satellite_antenna.html or this http://www.rtl-sdr.com/simple-noaameteor-weather-satellite-antenna-137-mhz-v-dipole/
