  1. 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)
  2. This is "Modem Manager", a module created to allow connection to the internet via 3G and 4G USB modems. How to use this module: This module currently only works for modems with Serial Interfaces and Abstract Control Modems (ACM). You can read about modems with serial interfaces here. Support for modems with NCM and QMI may be added at a later date. It's hard for me to implement this support without these types of modems, so if you have a QMI modem please feel free to test some configurations and share your experience. You may also need to reboot your pineapple after setting up your modem in the module. This is to allow the 'usbserial' kernel module to be loaded with the correct VID:PID of your modem. Version 1.1 is out.
  3. Hello folks, has anyone gotten two of these to work as, perhaps, a chatroom (like the YS1 with ToorChat)? https://www.ebay.com/itm/433Mhz-CC1101-10mW-MAX232-RS232-USB-UART-RF-Transceiver-Wireless/142344922555?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649 One blog post i looked at, which i can't find now & was undated, said he could find no documentation on how to use this. I would like to use it as a chat transceiver, controlled by python scripts. Also found this: https://github.com/veonik/arduino-cc1101 but i am not knowledgeable enough to figure out if the USB CC1101 goes with an Arduino, or if it's necessary to jump into Arduino to do this. I'm hesitating getting into Arduino, and if there's a simple usb dongle that can send & recv text using FSK with Python scripts, i'm in favor of that. ... There are CC1101 available that are not USB. Thanks for any comments . --orrin
  4. Hi, It would be great to see a full list of supported USB WiFi chipsets somewhere on the forums. I have been looking for a long time, but I can only find a few supported chipsets for firmware version 1.0 and those adapters are hard to get a hold of. So can anyone give me such a list? Thanks in advance, Snaak
  5. Here's a YARDStick1 case design I made. Will post up the 3D files later so people can re-use/modify themselves.
  6. I got the following from usd.dx.com, and I am pleased with the performance boost they provide, although I am judging based upon an ad hoc evaluation of signal strength of FM radio streams. Obviously, no antenna is perfect for every frequency, although the composite dipole antennas seem to provide good performance at wide bandwidth/wide variety of frequencies, but look like a throw back to the TV antennas everyone used in the 70's and basically, before Satellite and cable tv service was the defacto standard. However, the gauge of the wire, and the overall construction of the antenna I bought seems to be a big step up from the antenna included with the dongle, for the frequencies I am looking at. Here are links to the antenna I am playing with: http://usd.dx.com/product/portable-digital-dvb-t-tv-25dbi-omni-magnetic-based-aerial-booster-antenna-iec-901030061#.UydkzfldVOI To connect it to the Realtek dongle from the Hak5 store, you will also need: http://usd.dx.com/product/lwj-023-mcx-male-to-tv-female-antenna-adapter-cable-black-17-5cm-901207418#.UydmkfldVOI The antenna has a nice large base, and is beefier in size than the included antenna in the realtek dongle packs, and it seems to perform well for a general purpose Omni. Oh yes, the base is magnetic, so make sure you don't leave it on those vintage 5 1/4" floppies you have laying around. It, even with the adapter cable, is cheap, and this is usually a consideration for most of us. usd.dx.com also offers free shipping if you are willing to be somewhat patient. Everything you order from them arrives... eventually ( 1 1/2 to 2 weeks delivery is typical ). I almost hate to say it, but there are also Realtek dongles that have the larger antenna connectors built into the dongle, so you don't need the adapter cable if you are using a variant ( from another source ) of the Realtek dongle from the Hak5 store. Maybe the Hak5 store will start offering the other dongles with a more general/larger antenna connector. Signal is everything with radio. So, every connector/adapter you throw into the mix is going to drop signal strength a bit, especially when you drop the gauge of the conductor ( wire ) down. I understand the argument for the Hak5 dongle, you don't need to worry as much about position or it getting in the way of another usb Cable, but I just use a short USB extension cable. Having a cable in betwixt the dongle and the computer is completely different from strangling the signal strength coming into the dongle. Once RF makes it into the dongle, everything is USB/digital out to the port on your computer. Having the radio slightly away from the main body of the computer also has some benefits ( with the Hak5 dongle included in this mix ) as the location of the dongle away from the computer allows the dongle to not be blocked by the body of your computer ( if you are using a desktop ) which can have negative effects, also possible is RF interference from the computer, so my general opinion is the dongle works better off of an USB extension cable, but I use a lot of desktops, because the performance of desktops and the peripherals are in a form factor that makes modifications/maintenance much easier, and Notebooks are designed with battery life as a major consideration, so with less power, comes the consequence of less performance. I use a mix of desktops and laptops/netbooks/android devices, but the smaller form factor devices are mainly used for browsing and SSH or RDP'ing into my other servers/workstations, or other applications where mobility is more useful. My desktops are where I do most of my linux/FreeBSD/Solaris server or development/programming boxes, and my gaming.and Windows 7. One of my netbooks ( Intel Atom ) runs a nice linux distribution specifically designed for it, with a desktop that is oriented towards the smaller screen size. The others run Windows 7. Usually, if I am programming or doing things on the Linux/FreeBSD/Solaris boxes, I use RDP or ssh from a windows 7 box unless I need higher graphics/audio performance, then I do it on directly from the console of the host machine. I used the atom running linux for many years for most of my web browsing before I went to my dual core AMD netbook. The atom runs cooler and longer on the battery, the AMD cranks out the heat, but also has a nice bit of performance and can even limp along in most games. More heat from the computer means more performance. The netbooks are also convenient for working with microcontrollers, as far as programming them. I work with both Pic and Atmel microcontrollers, and a netbook is more appropriate for updating the code, especially when the microcontroller is already deployed in an application. ISP on Atmels pretty much means you need to drag the computer to where the microcontroller is doing its thing. The pics I use are socket oriented, and I can pop them out and drag them back to my Olimex Pic programmer. I don't debate which is better, as far as Pic vs Atmel. It is sort of like Apple vs Windows. I just don't care. I use whatever is best for the project. I have seen some people try to claim that newer computers are more environmentally sensitive, but in my experience, the more heat a computer cranks out, the better the performance. I also used to support data centres, so I have a bit of experience in power consumption, performance, and cooling issues. If you aren't familiar with HVAC/cooling issues with computer servers, you aren't working in a data centre that even qualifies as small scale, or you are running servers in Alaska. I have rambled, and I apologise for some of this, but I have learned so much about computers, electronics, programming, and networking that my mental wiring is partially fried, so consider anything I write as a partial core dump from my main CPU. When I went to school, I was usually kicked out from the computer classes and told to go work in the library on my projects, and just turn in the work at the end of the day, or the end of the quarter. Teachers found my breadth of knowledge to be intimidating, and my social skills to be largely undeveloped. I couldn't help it if I knew more than my teachers, with the exception of my coworker at Heritage College who was the head of the Computer Science department. He is a smart cookie, and was quite enjoyable to collaborate with, as well as learn from. Come to think of it, he was the only computer prof I had that didn't kick me out of his classes. -FuzzyBunny
  7. Hi all, Wondering if anyone can help, bit of a noob with this. Had a pineapple quite a while and had no problems so far, all working well. Decided to try and get 3g working so bought a mf637 T-mobile branded dongle unlocked. Using a script found on the forums I'm getting no joy at all and have no clue where to start. Lsusb output doesn't show the dongle at all : ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub Bus 001 Device 002: ID 1a40:0101 Terminus Technology Inc. 4-Port HUB Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0781:5571 SanDisk Corp. Cruzer Fit ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- When I unplug and put the dongle back in I see this in the logs: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 00:02:52 Pineapple kern.info kernel: [ 172.570000] usb 1-1.3: new high-speed USB device number 4 using ehci-platform 00:02:52 Pineapple kern.err kernel: [ 172.620000] hub 1-1:1.0: unable to enumerate USB device on port 3 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Did ls /dev/tty* to see if anything matches as defined in the script (/dev/ttyUSB0) but nothing along those lines is shown. I tested my three 321 uk sim in the dongle on my laptop after filling in the apn and dial number settings and it connected ok, however not allowing me to browse (they new it was in a dongle and therefore not allowed!) guess Ill have to change sim. I'm guessing this wouldn't have anything to do with my problems would it.

  8. Hi there, I've been searching around the forum but can't find any definitive information.. I saw there are two wiki pages dedicated to this, but they don't contain information yet: http://wiki.wifipineapple.com/index.php/Modems http://wiki.wifipineapple.com/index.php/Compatible_Modems Can anyone recommend any 21 Mbps (HSPA+) 3G dongle that works out of the box with the WiFi Pineapple? Or with a readily available script? :) Preferably one that allows an external antenna to be attached to it. Thanks a bunch in advance, ocn^
  9. Hi, I just have some questions about a piece of hardware that I found recently. This USB dongle, created by Alfa for a company called "x-consepts" in Dubai, is claimed to have some pretty amazing specs. 5000mw output, 3000m range, and 36dbi gain... But that's all the specs. Nothing on the actual hardware. - http://www.aliexpres.../629933945.html What I'm curious about is if anyone has more info on these dongles, and if anyone thinks that it is worth the $30 to buy one and test it. Also, if I were to buy one, is it possible to use a spitter to allow large directional antennae to work with the double antenna jacks? Thanks for any help. :D - and yes, I have scoured google for more info.
