  1. Are either of you using filtering at all? My suggestion is to uncheck the broadcast SSID Pool option and leave everything else the same. Save active ssttings as default then make sure there are no MAC addresses or SSIDs in either filter and set both of them to Deny. Then set the Open AP and reboot the device. Once it comes back try connecting to the Open AP. Also, are you able to connect to the Management AP with the Android device?
  2. Sorry I couldn't be of more help. I hope you have better luck with the replacement. :)
  3. https://www.wifipineapple.com/pages/faq Follow the firmware recovery option and not the factory reset.
  4. Do you have your nano connected to an internet connection. If you go to the Dashboard page and try to Load Bulleting do they show up after a few seconds? If not, it sounds like you don't have a connection to the internet. There are other posts in here that tell you how to share your computers internet connection with the nano when it's plugged in or you can use a usb wireless dongle plugged in to the usb port to connect. If you don't have one, they sell compatible ones in the Hak shop.
  5. 1. I don't see a problem with the scenario you mention. Are you assuming there is a problem with it because the S7 isn't automatically connecting when you deauth it? 2. No, clients don't need to have been connected to an open wifi prior to it being able to connect to the pineapple. Signal strength could be part of the issue you are having. I have also had some difficulty getting specific devices to connect. Some times it takes a lot of patience and multiple times of trying. Not all devices connect the same way. I believe there are other posts on the forums addressing this issue.
  6. Does it happen when running on battery too? Or are you only running it with the power cord that was supplied? I haven't yet but I plan to order another power cord online because mine doesnt seem like a very good quality so I think that's causing my problem.
  7. Hmm. Have you only done one factory reset? I know it sounds weird but I had a few strange issues that were resolved after factory resetting a few times. Not sure why this would help but in my case it did.
  8. Can you post a screenshot of the PineAP and Filtering page?
  9. Probably a dumb question but are you saving the options after checking the boxes on the PineAP page?
  10. Why do you want to use the usb wifi dongle for remote management? Is there a reason why you arent connecting to to Management AP that you set up when you set the pineapple up? I think you will find that most people use the usb dongle to connect the pineapple wirelessly to an internet connection so they can use it in a Man-In-The-Middle configuration. I believe the Management AP is what you are looking for. If you dont remember what you called it, you can find it on the Network Settings Page
  11. Are you running the latest firmware? Does the pool stay empty when you run a recon?
  12. Does it completely turn off or reboot? Is it only turning off under a heavy load (like while running Recon?) Or will it randomly shut off with no load on it?
  13. What options do you have set in the PineAP tab? How is your filtering set? Are you using MAC filtering as well as SSID filtering?
  14. Seb, Thanks for your help but I played around with it this weekend and figured out the problem. It's been bugging me on and off for about a year now. I had Client Filtering set to "Allow Mode" so I could choose the MAC addresses to limit which devices could connect to the pineapple. My computer's mac address wasn't added to the list so I wasn't able to reconnect when I disconnected or rebooted the device. Is this by design? I can see why you wouldn't want a random device to connect to the Open AP or any of the broadcast APs but I would expect the Management AP would allow any device that had the Management AP Key to connect to it. In my situation I set the Pineapple up using my desktop computer. If I was going to place it at a client location I wouldn't be using the same computer to access it again later. I might be using one of my mobile devices. I would have to know all of the MAC addresses from my devices and add them to the pineapple prior to placing it which isn't always possible for me.
  15. Yes.,Reboot, Power Down or Just unplug... After that I am no longer able to connect via the Management AP OR the Open AP if that's enabled. The SSIDs will still be broadcast and I can see them on my computer and mobile devices but I'm unable to connect to them.
  16. Unfortunately for me a reboot doesn't work on either the Tetra OR the Nano. I'm still unable to connect to either AP after a reboot or power down. I don't ever lose the connection when I have it and the unit is powered up. My problem occurs when I'm done for the day and shut down or reboot. That's when I can't connect again after. I have to do a factory reset on the nano because when I use it, I'm almost never near a computer. I'm unable to plug it in to a computer to Update the Access Point. I'm usually accessing it via a Nexus Pwn Phone. So I have to factory reset in order to get back in. Since I can consistently reproduce the problem on both of my devices, is there anything I can do that will help you track it down?
  17. Some steps I took... With all modules removed and PineAP not running: I updated the access point from the Networking tab and I was able to connect to the Management AP again. I used the "Reboot" option from the menu. Once it was rebooted I tried to connect via the management AP and it wouldn't let me. I logged in via the cable and Updated the access point again and I was able to connect to the Management AP again. This time I used the "Shut Down" option and unplugged the Tetra after a minute or so. I plugged the tetra back in and tried connecting to the Management AP once it was fully booted. I couldn't connect to the Management AP. I'm also unable to connect to the Open AP SSID when I have that enabled.
  18. I had a little time to play around with it more. The only way I was able to connect to the wireless management port again was by logging in over a wired connection and clicking the button to "Update Access Point" under networking. Does anyone know exactly what that does under the hood? I know it says "The Wireless AP Configuration has been saved. The radios will now restart. If connected over Wireless, you may need to reconnect." I'm looking for a little more detail than that though so I can try to troubleshoot why they stop working to begin with. This is happening on my Nano AND Tetra. With the Tetra it's annoying but not a big deal because I can still get in over the wire but with the Nano I don't have that ability and I have to factory reset it all the time. I thought it either had something to do with a conflict between modules because I downloaded ALL of them (along with dependencies) to both devices prior to using them or maybe it was a problem with the way I configured PineAP. I have it set to Enabled and the options for "Allow Associations", "Log Probes", "Log Associations", "Capture SSIDs to Pool" & "Beacon Responses" all checked. I saved that configuration as default so I don't have to do it every time I power on the pineapple. Does anyone have any thoughts on logs that might be useful in providing info on why the radios need to be reset in order to connect again?
  19. I'm having a similar issue with my Nano AND Tetra. I perform the initial setup / upgrade the firmware to the latest version and then configure it all. Once it's configured I usually download all of the modules I want and play around with it for a couple hours. After that I shut it down using the shut down option in the gui and wait a minute or two until i can unplug them. The next time I try to use it, it powers up fine and i see the management AP show up in available networks. I try to connect with my computer or my cell phone but both the Nano and the tetra won't allow me to connect. It just tries and tells me it cant connect. The windows connection test tells me to try to reboot the device but that does nothing. The only way i've been able to get back in to the nano is to perform a factory reset and set it all back up again which is a major PITA every time I eant to use it. Has anyone else had this problem? I'm on the latest firmware. With the Tetra i'm able to get back in via the RJ45 jack or USB ports. I just can't connect over wifi to the management network OR the open network if I have that configured.
  20. I was wondering if anyone else had issued when plugging their Tetra in. I bought mine when it first came out and had to wait for the replacement AC adapter. I've hardly used it over the last year but notice when I do, i get a spark when I plug it in. It doesn't matter which end I plug in first, the tetra or the wall outlet, it always sparks. I was curious if this was an issue with the AC adapter. I was considering buying a new adapter from amazon but wanted to see if anyone else had the same problem. It doesn't appear to have damaged anything and what i've done to alleviate it now is to plug it in to the tetra then a power strip which is turned off. Once it's plugged in I turn the power strip on.
  21. I was playing around with the Connected Clients module on the Nano and I noticed the "Blacklist" section shows all of the mac addresses I added to the Filters section of the nano. I have the client fitering set to allow those mac addresses but ConnectedClients still shows it as a blacklist. I'm wondering it the module will interfere with the allow option in filtering or if the word blacklist is just a bad choice of terms in the ConnectedClients module.
  22. I've been trying to figure out my tetra power issues for a while now. When i plug it in to AC power it works fine. When i use it on battery, it reboots on me whenever I enable PineAP and check the options "Allow Associations", "Beacon Response" and Capture SSIDs to Pool". I've tried every configuration I can think of with the 2 Pineapple Juice 15000's. I've even swapped each one that came with the tetra with the one from my Hak5 Field Kit thinking maybe one of the 2 was bad. I have even configured them the was Darren shows in the photo in this post. https://forums.hak5.org/index.php?/topic/37663-pineapple-tetra-reboots-after-a-few-minutes Is anyone else still having this issue?
  23. In the PineAP module, what is "Save active config as default" under "Configuration" supposed to actually save? I enabled the PineAP Daemon and checked the boxes for: -Allow Associations -Log Probes -Log Associations -Capture SSIDS to Pool -Beacon Response I left the box for Broadcast SSID Pool unchecked. Then I clicked the Save PineAP Settings button. Once I did that, I clicked on the Configuration drop down and clicked Save active config as default. Whenever I reboot the nano the PineAP Daemon is enabled and it remembered that the Capture SSIDs to Pool and Beacon Response were selected but the following 3 are no longer selected: -Allow Associations -Log Probes -Log Associations When I save the active config is it supposed to save everything on the page or just the PineAP Daemon setting?
