Have I Missed A Key Step?


Recommended Posts

Ok I have been browsing the forums for about three days now. My issue is, I bought the pineapple, plugged it in through ethernet, and my laptop internet didn't work anymore. I think it was looking for internet through the ethernet, even though I was still connected to my wireless. So I logged into the webif, and changed the IP and DNS information multiple times due to the different tutorials I have found. I have tried Internet Sharing, which failed, and I've tried bridging in Win7 (both with patch cable, and cross over). The Pineapple SSID is showing, but once you connect to it, you don't get any internet.

The only thing I have manage to do was change the pineapple IP through Webif to something within the subnet, and make up a gateway (something like 192.168.0.2) THEN from my mac, Manually set its IP to the gateway I set within the Webif. When I do that the "man in the middle" laptop can browse thru the internet even with the ethernet plugged in, but still once the "test laptop" connects to Pineapple, it gets nothing. I've turned on Karma, but its not showing any SSID's besides the ones I am around. And when the test laptop connects to anything besides Pineapple, it doesn't show up in Karma.

I recently changed the IP within the Webif to 192.168.0.205, the mask to 255.255.255.0 and left the gateway and DNS blanked, and have both laptops ive been plugging it into on auto IP. I apologize for being such a 'noob', I have searched through the forums and tried everything I could find in the last 3 days, but no luck. Can somebody hopefully lead me in the right direction?

As all the Fon does is bridge its wired and wireless interfaces it doesn't matter what config it has so whatever you've done to that it shouldn't matter to the clients. Ideally it should be on the same subnet and have the same setup details as any normal cient on your network so that it can see the internet for testing but that isn't a requirement.

When you try to connect with a client what happens? Does it associated? Do you see anything on the client?

Hey thanks for the quick response. When I plug the fon into my Mac, it disconnects me from internet, as if it is depending on the Fon to give me my internet now, instead of the wireless. Depending on how much Ive messed with it, sometimes my skype will still be connected, but the browser and ping doesn't reach destination. Right now, when I currently ping, I get this:

ING 8.8.8.8 (8.8.8.8): 56 data bytes

92 bytes from 192.168.1.1: Destination Net Unreachable

Vr HL TOS Len ID Flg off TTL Pro cks Src Dst

my router's subnet is 192.168.0.100-200, but this moment the webif is 192.168.1.1. So it looks like when my ethernet is plugged in, its working with the ethernet/fon, instead of my wireless card/router?

and as for the "test computer" it list my main SSID here, and Pineapple.. none of the others ive been on, so I choose Pineapple. Karma shows me logged in, but when i connect to Pineapple, there is no internet, I cant do anything on there.

hey thanks for the reply digininja, sorry, I was gone. But that has not solved my problem yet. I have originally had it on the same subnets, and after I couldn't get it to work, I was just trying a bunch of different things. If I manually give it an IP on the same subnet, but its own, the laptop it is sharing the ethernet with cannot use the internet. nothing will load, can't ping. If you wirelessly connect to the ssid "Pineapple" you also dont have any internet access either. But I have been gone for over a week, so I will play with it some more tomorrow, and see what I can figure out.

take it step by step, check the bridge machine has an internet connection, then the Fon, then check you've bridged things correctly on the Fon. Next check the victim can see the Fon, then the bridge then the internet. At one of those steps you'll probably find a break in the connections.

hey sorry I havent had time to play with it until tonight. Here is a snapshot of one idea I was trying http://uiu.me/Q1.png On the Fon, I have tried making its IP 192.168.0.207 and Default Gateway 192.168.0.1 .. I will finally have time to play with it this week, and see what I can come up with. I can't believe I have turned such an easy thing into such a complication.

You've created a loop. you've told the mac its IP is 207 and its gateway is 175 and the fon that its IP is 175 and the gateway is 207. You throw in a packet and its just going to spin till it dies.
