  1. Hello, I want to attach a yagi antenna on the TETRA to increase range for wlan1 in client mode. I do not want to make a mistake. Is it correct to replace just one antenna on the right with the yagi antenna? Why would the TETRA take damage if I deattach one of the antennas as it is stated here: Thank you.
  2. Lets start by saying, I know almost nothing about antennas. What antenna do you use? What is the dBi on the stock antenna (I did not see it on the product page). I prefer omni, but I was told if you want distance, you need a directional antenna. I'm open to suggestions..
  3. Hi, With the front (LED side) of the WiFi Pineapple TETRA facing you, the two antennas on the left are wlan0 and the two on the right are wlan1. But which are 5Ghz and which are 2.4Ghz? Could someone help me please?
  4. I have the Tetra. When I connect one of the antennas, the antenna connector on the case spins a little. It doesn't do this as I'm putting the antenna on. Is there some way to tighten this down? Do I have to take the case off to tighten a nut?
  5. I recently received my RF HACKING FIELD KIT and I'm using the ANT500 with the HackRF. The antenna screws onto the HackRF and the screw connection is snug but the antenna point of connection is loose. The antenna swivels and falls to the table and I'm not sure how to tighten it to keep it standing up. This is not the screw or attachment point with the philips screw, this is something under the black cone. Has anyone else had this problem and is there a solution? If not I might have to keep a couple of LEGO pieces in my field kit to create a little stand to keep the antenna upright.
  6. Hi, i have been looking for the WHOLE internet and it seems that nobody want to do this, my idea is to use a wireless adapter aircrack-ng/monitor mode compatible, and take off its own antenna and instead of it to use a long range antenna like the ubiquiti nano station antena, so it catches the wifi signals up to 5 miles away and i can use them with the aircrack-ng suite, i really don´t know if i´m been enough clear, however, i want to know if this can be done. thanks you guys for any help on this one.
  7. Well I been getting the parts I got the coax cabling and my software radio is programmed and I got orbitron I just need to know what is the simplest antenna to make and if there are any decent tutorials with pictures now I don't got anything to really solder with so the simpler the design the better. If any one has had practice doing this with SDR let me know what you prefer to do. Also I plan to use my usb rubber ducky or my digispark to pull up the programs and set everything up for recording and automatically stop recording when pass is done. Also if it isn't much and the design is simple
  8. So this nano boost is nice, but where does the bigger antenna plug into? It has it's own usb type connection with its own mac address. the order was a nano X 1. why does an antenna need a mac address? thanks
  9. I don't understand how the RF portion works...4 antennas, does that equate to 4 receivers? If I want to use a directional antenna, do I need to have one on each antenna port? Just need a bit of basic info. I plan on using Kali on a Raspberry Pi to interface, then SSH into either the Pi or the Pineapple (I'm a neophyte so not a guru on SSH). Thanks for all comments.
  10. My last question was answered so well I thought I throw another one at you guys. Has anyone used a balloon for receiving radio signals? (4g, wifi, tv or whatever else) i moved and now live behind a ridge, the AT&T tower is a stubby piece of crap like maybe 40 ft tall and can't go beyond the ridge. i bought a 4g booster/repeater and I figured the best way I could test it would be a balloon, before I put up a tower. if anyone has tried this with something similar I would be very interested to hear what type of balloon and any tricks you have. thank you
  11. I brought my Tetra to Europe and I lost 1 antenna. Do you guys have a replacement set I can buy or a link to the correct SMA antenna? I am having a hard time finding them on the interwebz. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers!
  12. I found out that if you make simple chains out of soda tabs its the perfect material to make a super bendable antenna that is super easy to store and when it done you can hook some non metal clips to the end to attach it too what ever you want. Now heres the best part if you don't got a soldering tool but hot glue this actually still works really well. Step 1. Strip some 50 ohm to 75 ohm coax cable and separate the shielding from the main cable and then when you done doing that put the cable off to the side and work on the chain. Step 2. Get soda tabs a lot of them and cut the ends o
  13. I have been looking at the ANTENNA ARSENAL FOR WIFI PINEAPPLE NANO from the HakShop, but I am not sure if any of the included antenna support the 5GHz frequency. Does anyone know if they do?
  14. I thought this was cool I tried a few designs ended up botching them up but I found out just some simple rabbit ears extended to the right length plugged in via coax to my SDR was just enough to make this work even if for a little. I still got to remove the rabbit ears from tv antenna there used for to help increase the image quality then solder them to some coax but even when it was storming and I lost power I still got a image barely so this is a good start can't wait to make a video on it when I get it all clear and automated. Recent attempt turned out a little better managed to
  15. I want to build a yagi antenna but I'm confused with the elements. Please tell me what kind of metals to use... Thanks in advance
  16. Hi, So I am testing out how to maximize the power and range of the tetra. I bought 4 wireless power boosters from the hakshop and tried them on all 4 antennas , for some reason, epic failure because I did not notice that the tetra antennas inputs are female and so are the power boosters.... :facepalm: so that does not work. I got 9dbi antennas from atheros .... another epic fail, its as if there are no antennas.. soooooooooo my question is, how to maximize the power on this beast.
  17. The antenna ports on one side of my Tetra were starting to get loose today, so I decided to investigate. Turns out there is a lock washer that is supposed to be gripping the nut. That washer was turned around so that the teeth were facing the plastic as shown here. All that needed to happen was to turn the washer around so that the teeth face the nut. The problem was just on 1 side of the Tetra. I tested it and it looks like the new configuration held better. Also, you don't need to take the housing off the Tetra to do this as there are support posts for the nut on the opposite side
  18. Hi all, So my latest endeavour, in preparation for doing the CEH course in the near future, and because I'm a curious nerd, was to pen test my own Wi-Fi. However, I'm having major issues with how difficult it is to pick my Wi-Fi up from any reasonable distance. Initially, my goal was to drive to a couple of nearby locations and see how easy it was to locate my Wi-Fi from 50m, 100m, 150m, etc. I haven't even got as far as pen testing it, just wanted to test viable locations for doing so and to give myself a good idea of the distance at which someone could connect. I am using an R
  19. Hi guys, I am considering purchasing a Pineapple Tetra. I searched out the forums for most of my answers but I do have a question about the range. How strong of a signal does the Tetra give off as far as distance (when in AP mode)? How great is the tetra at AP (SSID) discovery? Can it's AP signal and (SSID) discovery range compete with an Alfa wireless card such as these two (A) (B)? Thanks.
  20. Hey guys, for some reason when put the antennas on the device, they are loose, have already adjusted to the maximum possible and they are still loose, How I do to make them straight? Perhaps this pair is defective? I ordered the nano tactical elite that comes with the upgraded antenna, that's the one with the issue.
  21. Hi all I have bought a Yagi antenna from Hak5, a plneapple V and a alfa awuso36nha. I also went to Fry's ( chicago) only place I know for RP connectors and this is all they had. I bought : 1 a SMA female to SMA female barrel connector 2 a Reverse Polarity SMA Crimp Male (Plug) Connector With Female Pin product code RPA 2452p 3 Reverse Polarity SMA Plug R/A (female pin) product code RPA-2453P ready to be crimped. 4 extention cable 50ohm ( 7 feet) with rp-sma female and RP-sma male. 5 6 feet of rg58 53.5 ohm cable no connectors I was hoping that it wou
  22. What is the best method to access wireless networks that are several hundred meters away? My impression is that it's no good accessing the router from far away if that router does not have the technical ability to reply to you (since it's just a normal home router)? Is that correct? I ask because the "Tom's Hardware Forum" posters suggest that not only should you be able to connect to the router but that it should have the technical capability to respond to you (when you are hundreds of meters away). I have read about Yagi antennas but do they work when you are trying to connect to a
  23. Just picked up my nano from you guys at defcon (great to see you all there!) and was curious which antenna is tied to which radio interface? Looking to do something similar to your point to point to multipoint and figured I'd ask before going the trial and error method. Also thanks for this awesome piece of hardware!
  24. Hi everyone! I have a ALFA AWUS036NHA with the AR9271 chipset and a 13 dBi antenna. I'm trying to run the antenna outside my RV to reduce signal interference. I bought and extension cable on eBay like this one: http://www.ebay.com/itm/271723497124?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT howerver, for some reason, I'm getting a worse signal than when I have the antenna inside! I did some testing and it seems that the signal is not passing through the cable.Can anyone suggest a good extension cable or some kind of small signal booster? Thanks! zog
  25. Hi all, i was given a 'Long Range WiFi Holiday Bundle' for Christmas by a relative, from the Hak5 shop. I was mostly just after a new adapter with the Ralink chipset, but since this bundle came with the Yagi antenna, i'm keen to try it out. However, the bundle didn't appear to come with an adapter that will allow me to connect the antenna to the wireless adapter, as both ends are male, and the single adapter that came with the bundle also has both ends male.. Was this adapter supposed to be female on both ends? Because that is the only way that i can see it allowing me to connect the Yagi, a
