I don't know what happened. It was working perfectly fine this morning. Suddenly when I plug in my ethernet cord I received with the pineappe device when I purchased it, Windows 7 is reporting "Network Cable Unplugged." Some people say it may have had something to do with the pineapple not getting enough power but I don't see how that was possible considering it was plugged into a wall jack. I also uninstalled my ethernet driver on Windows 7 and reinstalled it and that didn't help either. The pineapple itself seems to be working perfectly fine when I connect to it via wifi. But it just will not connect via ethernet. Any ideas on how to solve this problem would really really be appreciated.
Hey guys I made a Huge error , I was trying too up the battery pack I use for my pineapple so I went out and got a 12v Lead acid Battery I may have made a mistake i think i may have switched the + and the - , I have checked the previous posts regarding this , but i think as i plugged it in quick, saw big sparks , yanked it out, i know someone else has blown the FP6118 but i blew the L18 component on the board , and have no idea what to replace it with or where too start , does anyone know which component this is , i am quite confident in soldering and have all the tools to do so , but i have no idea what component it is , can anyone help? http://s15.postimg.org/mafyvp4cn/DSC_0032.jpg http://s15.postimg.org/qh0tb13yf/DSC_0031.jpg http://s15.postimg.org/p0pasw11j/DSC_0030.jpg as i said the component is labeled L18 (in the top right hand corner). i think it may be some form of power re-stricter / limiter to save anything else getting blown.
Hello all, 2 part question. First, cant seem to get my little 4gig san disk working on the pineapple mk4. I've got it formated to Ext4 and partitioned to an 80-20 split. When i plug it in. the USB light comes on and the disk is listed in the lsusb Output tab as "Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0781:5530 SanDisk Corp. Cruzer". I did the whole "mkswap /dev/sda2" command in advanced. The problem is that when i check the resources tab the disk space hasnt done up. The one thing i havent done that the pineapple booklet says is that because im formating and partitioning with windows minipartition tool instead of linux the process was a little different. I didnt see an option uncheck the take ownership box because there didnt seem to bee one. Is this a major problem, and is this normally enabled by default? Second question is if im not concerned about battery life can i just use a toshiba external HDD thats got two Ext4 partitions to store data. I have the drive partitioned into about 4 parts. 2 of which are the 80-20 split and ext4 format. It has the same problem as the little san disk. i.e shows up in the lsusb output but doesnt acctually increase disk space. Let me know what u think the deal is. Thanks
