  1. I just got Wifi Pineapple Nano, and last week I received the Tetra Tactical. It is such great tool, I really appreciate the support Hak5 provides, and some of the others that help out in the forums. One of the biggest things I really like is the true open-source involved with products. It is easy to run a script, but when having to learn the ins and outs of basics (been watching lot of videos) and nice to be a small part of the community. Amazingly, I work full time in IT (over 20 years), now additionally tutor at local college (IT Certifications) and I have 6, working on my 7th cert, Hak5 products are really making me learn more about pen testing.I run into many people that do not take time to learn things, expect others to do research for them (I have done that few times), but it is awesome to come home after day at work and get into my "pentesting" world. Cool Stuff.

    That is all I wanted to say. Thanks everyone

  2. Personally I have Lenovo t520, someone mentioned SSD drive, I have 2 same exact models, one SATA and one SSD. I use SATA for Kali dedicated, and SSD I have Win 10, and VM with Parrot. So far, it is nice to have dedicated T520 for Kali. I never thought I would put stickers on things, but just got tetra last week and ordered nano today, now my kali laptop has hak5 sticklers all over it! Sadly, I tried to root my Samsung Tablet as it had no tethering capabilities for the nano, it is bricked - now I will breakdown and spend $$ on probably used tablet with tethering capabilities for nano. Definitely nice if you have extra $$ get separate laptop. I bought signal booster from Hak5 also, have Yagi antenna on tri-pod (really awesome), 3 different external wifi adapters useful in Kali for pen-testing. 

    I have always thought of myself as a minimalist, but now all this equipment I have and am getting is insane. I love the tetra, getting used to it, and nano will be awesome. I think the coolest part is the community - i saw some idiot had written an article regarding tetra and software support - blah blah - in the end he had no idea how to get into linux and pen test is my take, the Linux foundation also has free intro courses I am taking that!

  3. Hello, so I got my Tetra last week and I love it (still learning to use it). My dilemma, I have iphone xr my employer provides, do not want to use it for pen-testing. I had android phone, got rid of it - did not need it. i HAD a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 - with no tethering capabilities (version 7.2 android OS) which now after trying to root it, is a boot anchor - literally. I screwed it up.

    So - question - I have several laptops, one runs kali which I am using for tetra - does anyone have any suggestions on what I can buy new or used that does not require me to have monthly cell phone service fee, basically a tablet which I can download and run Pineapple AP interface on? I can easily bring my laptop to public areas to pen-test (in a closed area with permission!) but looking for something smaller and more discreet, but big enough screen I can use with my nano. I am old so bigger screens are better, maybe a tablet or cellphone? I thought older cell phone or tablet as long as it will allow me to tether (just do download the AP program)  and I will be good. Does the Nano pickup wifi also? It looks like it does, and the videos shows wifi adapter. Just wanting info - nano will be arriving next week. Thanks

  4. Hello, so after finally getting it up and going just got Tetra - few questions:

    1. Does anyone use USB memory stick on back of Tetra? If so, how big should I get, and format it for Linux, plug and play?

    2. Do people generally leave the units plugged in even if not home for long time (8 hours?) - I just did not want to power off and on unnecessarily if possible? Also only way of powering it off seems to unplug power? 

    3. How many modules do people generally download and use? I read somewhere in forums to not use internal memory to much on Tetra? I assume that is where the memory sticks come in?

    4. Any suggestions aside from YouTube videos and forums on how I can learn more hands on with WiFi pineapple? I see there are books to buy which is cool, just wanted feedback from more senior members.

    5. For home use - any suggestions on placement of WiFi Pineapple? For best reception, I live small studio apartment, alone, but thinking closer to window better? Or will it make much difference if I place it down by floor?

    6. The USB cord - I have long one I have - anyone suggest using that and the power supply came with Tetra? I also have Cisco switch with my Pineapple plugged directly into it for hardwired connection? Any thoughts on that?


    Thanks in advance - lots of questions, been in IT a long time doing variety of roles, so this is perfect for pen-testing just trying to figure out best way to get started. THanks

  5. Hello everyone, I just got my Tetra Elite Tactical, taking few days but finally understanding it. Have few questions, let me preface by saying I have watched the Hak5 youtube videos, Wiki and just about to purchase the book! I have done my research, even called Darren and he answered questions for me (Thanks man!). 

    1. Does the Tetra (brand new) only  get signals in/out from what it sees? I have been successful doing Dwall on my own apartment, but when I try to reach out I am having problems getting clients, following the primer video instructions and I am able to pull in my mobile devices, how far can the Tetra do MIM attacks?

    2. The USB Y cable, I have IBM Lenovo T520 laptop, should I have both Y cables in USB and power adapter in wall to insure I am getting enough power, or can I use heavy duty 10 ft USB/mini usb cable and the power adapter, does this degrade the signal going into my laptop or power? I like using my 10 ft USB cable (no Y adapter) as it is easier with my small apartment.

    I have been using kali in virtual environment on my laptop, having good luck, just cannot seem to pull in clients when testing. I live in apartment in very populated urban area in florida.

    I am just getting used to everything with Wifi Pineapple, I wanted to offer public apology to Hak5 also, I sent couple emails complaining about small things that were nothing major. My fault, I see now how the user community can help each other out, which is great. I am accustomed to dealing with corporations, so it is nice getting into this type of user community. Thanks everyone if any assistance can be provided it is appreciated. The Wifi Pineapple is amazing, I have been in IT Support for 15 years, just now getting into networking and cyber security training and getting my CompTIA certs for them.
