  1. Sorry to say, it's only RJ45 Fast Ethernet.



    • CPU: 533 MHz MIPS 74K Atheros AR9344 SoC
    • Memory: 64 MB DDR2 RAM
    • Disk: 2 GB NAND Flash
    • Wireless: Atheros AR9344 + Atheros AR9580, both IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n with quad integrated skybridge amplifiers and included 5 dBi antenna for a high 29 dBm gain EIRP
    • Ports: (4) SMA Antenna, RJ45 Fast Ethernet, Ethernet over USB, Serial over USB, USB 2.0 Host, 12V/2A DC Power
    • Power: Requires 18W. Accepts power from any combination of sources; DC Barrel Port, USB ETH port, USB UART port. AC wall adapter for stationary deployment and USB Y cable for mobile deployment included.
    • Configurable Status Indicator LED
    • Configurable Reset Button

  2. I Just use the Y-Cable with the tetra. And it works for me.

    You only need to plug it into power when you're throwing a heavy load at it.



    WiFi Pineapple TETRA
    The WiFi Pineapple TETRA requires 24W for normal stable operation. While the device may function under minimal load with less power, system instability will occur during peak load.

    Power may be provided to the device by any combination of USB UART, USB ETH, or 12V DC ports. The 12V DC port accepts a standard IEC 60130-10:1971 type A connector with 5.5 mm OD, 2.1 mm ID (center positive).

    The UART and ETH ports on the WiFi Pineapple TETRA will accept power from combined USB sources, such as from computers, wall adapters or batteries via USB Y cables. There is no risk of providing too much power from standard 5 volt USB sources as the WiFi Pineapple TETRA will only draw as much amperage as needed.

    Most modern computers are capable of providing the necessary amperage from their USB ports to power the WiFi Pineapple TETRA using two USB Y cables. Older computers and many netbooks however may not provide enough continuous current for stable operation.

    When calculating total power in wattage, multiply the voltage and amperage. USB sources are always 5V and may vary in amperage depending on configuration. Many older USB 2.0 ports are limited to the 500mA specification while newer USB 3.0 ports can deliver 900mA and above. Typically notebook computers with USB charge ports (indicated in yellow, red or by lightning icon) will provide even higher amperage.

    Were you able to fix your problem? I got my tetra yesterday and looks like I got the same issue. Any information will be helpful. Thank you!

    Pleases plug it into the wall. when doing the update.

    upgraded from 2.3.0 to 2.3.1 and it is working for me. Although I have noticed non live scans don't auto load the results after scan. but you can click load and they display. Also for me continuous isnt continuous ? Humm that's all not consistent,. its true for 30sec scan, but not for 10min scan...

    I will also firmware recover and update and will see if persistent.

    AFTER FIRMWARE RECOVERY AND UPDATE - there seems an issue with first recon scan, no results displayed and scan would not load. After the first scan the second works well, results shown and load. Continuous is still not continuous tho.

    Hello 2.3.2 Then.
