So I have been at least trying to test everything on my mkv. Its been bumpy so far. Anyways I tried PineAP once and had the problem where I couldn't get it to start. I would just click on enable and my web interface would freeze up for 5-8 secs and then become responsive again but PineAP would stay disabled. I found that each time i do this it makes a new mon interface on wlan1. So after a few tries i have mon0, mon1, mon2. So it seemed like it was doing something but not starting. I killed off all the mon interfaces and found a fix here. Which was basically to go into my network big tile -> advanced -> reset wireless config. And I got PineAP to work well and its great once you get it started.
So after that I was messing around with ettercap and ettercap just kept refusing to start on any interface, even br-lan. many reboots later I still could not get it to start. I had the same issue with urlsnarf only it would start and run for like 3-5 sec (there was actual output in the textbox) then stop itself (This was on br-lan). So I went to change my ssid settings in the network tile and every time i saved them it would say wireless restarting, but nothing would happen. I thought this was strange so I tried to change mac addresses and that too was acting like it all went ok, but there was ultimately no change to my mac address. I tried pressing the reset wireless config and that reset it all. Then ettercap started working properly, but I had to use urlsnarf over ssh. Now I wanted to change my ssid off of the default pinapple ssid for my AP........ doesnt change. Now none of the settings would change in the network tile. I tried litterally everything I could think of, hostapd.conf ect and nothing would change my ssid for my AP.
At this point I decided to flash it.
Fresh Flash. I change my ssid successfully, get ettercap running successfully, and I still have to use urlsnarf over ssh, seems to be issues with that infusion. Anyways everything works great. I closed it all down and rebooted. Now when it boots back up, my mac addresses are still spoofed and my ssid is still the same I set it to. I try to start PineAP up again, but I am having the same issue as mentioned above and it just wont start. So I went to change my mac addresses back..... nothing happens. Press the reset wifi config button....... asks me to restart wifi ect...... nothing happens. I try to change my ssid....... nothing happens. I can ssh in and change my mac addresses manually, but when i click reset wifi config button... it sets them back to the spoofed ones. So pretty much nothing in the network tile is working, or at least working properly. I have rebooted several times and tried pretty much everything, and changing settings manually over ssh. Nothing is doing what it is supposed to or keeping any changes. PineAP still wont start.
I am about to reflash.
Hopefully there is some sort of useful information here or any1 can point out something I missed or something to try. I seem to be replicating this same weirdness with the network tile somehow.
anyways let me know what you guys think.
P.s. forgot to mention that in the log tile, I cant see anything. When i click between syslog and dmesg and custom tabs, they flash for a slit second then dissapear again behind what looks like the main web interface with a nav bar at the top but no tiles. its just black. but its contained under the tabs and in the big tile like a jframe or canvas
