Today, I received my pineapple nano, after a long time waiting. Finally, I connected the nano to my computer and it’s boots up. After a few seconds, the connection over the USB port was initializing but never established. After trying to identify and retrieve a IP address the connection dropped. Over Wi-Fi there are no problems with the connection.
So I upgrade the nano with the latest software, over Wi-Fi, hopefully to solve the ethernet over USB problem. Without any result. After logging in, the dashboard shows me a 100% CPU usage. I really don’t know why, the nano is completely default. The only configurations are credentials, to be clear, no modules are running.
So, I load the recovery software on the nano. The same problem occurs. No ethernet over USB to the 172.16 address and dropping connections. The striking thing is, it doesn’t occurs with a connection to 192.168 address. It does drop after about ten minutes I think.
An other problem is, the nano is booting after few minutes and comes in a loop of booting.
In my opinion I tried everything to solve the problem; upgrading the nano, install recovery firmware, I updated my pc driver for USB over ethernet, tried with and without SD card.
I tried to set up a connection from my MS Surface, Dell laptop and HP PC, all with the same results. I tried several power supplies, combinations and options. Read almost any item on the HAK5 forum
I definitely need assistance to solve this problem or to determine it is a hardware failure because I really think it is.
