I'm trying to get a wifi dongle working on my wifi pineapple mark 7 for 5GHz networks (because I cant get my hands on the 5GHz module and I don't know when or if I'll ever get it). I know there is a list of supported wifi adapters/dongles and their chipsets (mostly MT7612U) for MK7 but I don't have the supported dongles, so I'm trying to use what I already have. I'm trying to use AWUS036AC (chipset: rtl8812au) or AWUS036ACS (chipset: rtl8811au). I know there is a packet called kmod-rtl8812au-ct, it makes the pineapple able to see the dongles but is still unable to use them for 5GHz pen-testing. I know wifi pineapple is based on OpenWRT Linux but I'm not sure how I could compile already existing drivers like ones found on GitHub for my wifi dongles or if it's even possible. I would be thankful if anyone knows how to solve my issue or give me resources that might help or guide me as I don't know much about it. Resources I found so far: (Compiling: https://github.com/aircrack-ng/rtl8812au/issues/590 ) (rtl8812/11au drivers: https://github.com/greearb/rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux#makefile--for-instance-this-builds-against-recent-openwrt-neo2-platform--your , https://github.com/aircrack-ng/rtl8812au)
I'm trying to use the wifi pineapple to capture all 5ghz traffic, on channel 44. However when I try to run iwconfig wlan0 channel 44 I get: Error for wireless request "Set Frequency" (8B04) : SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument. Also none of the 5ghz frequencies seem to be listed: root@Pineapple:~# iwlist wlan0 frequency wlan0 11 channels in total; available frequencies : Channel 01 : 2.412 GHz Channel 02 : 2.417 GHz Channel 03 : 2.422 GHz Channel 04 : 2.427 GHz Channel 05 : 2.432 GHz Channel 06 : 2.437 GHz Channel 07 : 2.442 GHz Channel 08 : 2.447 GHz Channel 09 : 2.452 GHz Channel 10 : 2.457 GHz Channel 11 : 2.462 GHz I would appreciate any help on this matter.
