Hey everyone. This will be my first post here on Hak5 forums, and first I'd like to say I love all the tech talk. I have an old Alfa AP51 device, and am trying to do something, but it was given to me by a friend who either put Pineapple on it or bought it with Pineapple. I'm having a problem of one logging into the device. When I link to it, and enter 184.108.40.206 it just says "Nothing to see here" I was hoping I could flash it with the default firmware. I have tried looking up all I could but was surprised to know that I couldn't find very much on the topics. Another thing I need to know is, is it possible with the default firmware to wirelessly bridge the AP51 to a NETGEAR router and pull the signal over to it, and then to the computer through bridging the connections from wireless to wired(ethernet)? So basically I need to know how I can go about flashing it (on Windows 8) and if the bridging thing will work. I previously had an Alfa AWUS036H but it broke so basically I'm trying to substitute. Thanks everyone for feedback, and I would like to say I greatly appreciate it. :)
I got an alfa ap51 from a friend and for some dumb reason i hit the reset button on the bottom when i couldn't get in and now the web ui will not load. The LEDs for power and ethernet come on but not wifi (even though it is broadcasting the pineapple ssid) I can SSH to it over ethernet and wifi but can't get much further then that. I've followed Mr.Protocol's guide on how to flash the fw a few times to re-load the firmware with AP51 Flash GUI versions 1.0-42 & 1.0-42111 it get's to the point where the tool says my ip is 192.168.0.0 (even though it's 172.16.42.42) and the tool just sits there, I let it run over night for ~ 8 hours twice, one time each on 2 different computers. I downloaded the MK3 fw from Mr-Protocol dropbox link and from Sebkinne's forum post for 2.1.2. I tried to load an earlier version to see if that worked, no dice. Any advice is appreciated thx
