  1. What are the main differences between the AR9271 and the AR9331, just out of curiosity? Was there a reason that 2 different radios are chosen : ie, can 2 of the same not share the same board? Choosing hardware as an OEM. That sounds like a really interesting fun job! :)
  2. Thanks for the reply. So is the third radio just because the other 2 are busy, or if the issue highlighted in the quote above was not a factor, would it be able to do that job without the need for a third radio? Is the fake AP doing the karma attack, or occupineapple attack, or both?
  3. I nearly threw caution to the wind and went to buy one. Damn. Shipping! Ouch! Think I may have to wait for proper release so I can buy it in the European store.
  4. thanks for your reply foxtrot. I can appreciate what you wrote, and I can understand that seb managing multiple firmwares would be a nightmare. However, it was seb himself who said the MKIV still had things coming out for it. (example : https://forums.hak5.org/index.php?/topic/30654-my-mkiv-30-experience-so-far/?p=232449 ) Why not just say, "No, sorry, it's EOL. There will be nothing more." It wasn't till 6 months later that Darren confirmed it was dead : (same thread : https://forums.hak5.org/index.php?/topic/30654-my-mkiv-30-experience-so-far/?p=243433 ) It's kinda like ordering a taxi
  5. 2 Radios in the Pineapple, and neither of them are good enough? Or have I just read you wrong?
  6. Well, Congrats on the new hardware guys! It does look very promising! i like the new interface! I thought the Tiles interface introduced with the 3.0 firmware on the MKIV were an incredible waste of screen space. Looking at the download count between V2.8.1 and v3.0 it seems a lot of people agreed. V3.0 was pretty much buggy and broken from my experience. I gotta be honest though, while I am interested in buying this new version of the pineapple, I am still a little bit miffed about how the transition from MKIV to MKV was handled. Now, I haven't checked for a few months, however I remem
  7. Looks like they pulled down social.hak5.org
  8. it would be very upsetting if the MKIV stuff disappeared from here. The amount of times I have to factory reset it.....
  9. Thanks Darren for the reply, and also for your awesome work on the tinterwebs. I understand what you're saying and appreciate your position also. It's my own fault for jumping on the MKIV bandwagon so late, without realising the MKV was mere weeks away haha :) Maybe I will check out the MKV soon then if it has a while left in it's life, I had nice dreams of making a PineappleCopter which it would be perfect for :) Did you get luck in finding competitive overseas Distributors yet? Cheers!
  10. Hmmmm, yes. I have to be honest, it's a little disappointing that nothing has happened for the MKIV for over half a year. I understand it's a small team, and the MKV is the new Hak5 baby, but a little bit of MKIV action would be good about now! There are too many tech companies abandoning their products after a year or so of it being released. It's not a good trend. Also, another reason I didn't buy the MKV yet is because probably the MKVI will be out in X months, and I'm not a big fan of obsoleted equipment... *looks at drawer full of old smart phones and Pineapple MKIV*.
  11. There is A custom Ubuntu distribution which has lots of tools on it. Can't remember the name off hand. My rtl-sdr should arrive this week. I intend to do a write up when it does.
  12. it's debian based :) Bit of a rip off of the UI though :/
  13. First of all, I'd like to acknowledge that my recent interest in this type of research was born out of watching Darren's video interview with Renderman. So hat doffed, cheers guys! I found recently that a certain type of radio in some PC TV dongles (RTL2832U) can be used to watch more than free to air TV. I just ordered one for £7 on amazon, That's mindblowingly cheap.! The idea is that you use these USB devices to look / listen to the radio waves being broadcast around you within a range of frequencies. It seems that within these frequencies, all the good stuff happens. This is
