Trouble Manually Configuring Multiple Wireless Adapters In Bt5r1


Recommended Posts

When manually connecting to an OPEN WiFi network using BT5R1 "dhclient wlan0" (as seen in Telot's script) (without using "NetworkManager Applet 0.8" or "Wicd Network Manager") for wlan0 I get an error.

1) Any ideas?

I've searched all over and found different variations of what I'll post below but they all give me the same error:

My guess is that is has something to do with "DHCPDISCOVER" looking for "255.255.255.255" and not "255.255.254.0", or the error "mon0: unknown hardware address type 803"

What it looks like if I connect successfully with NetworkManager Applet 0.8 with only one wifi adapter connected

2) Is there a way to flush and restore "NetworkManager Applet 0.8" and "Wicd Network Manager" to default settings? I'm getting all sorts of "can't obtain IP address" errors.

service network-manager stop
/etc/init.d/wicd stop

My hardware setup is:

Laptop - Teo Pro Netbook (http://zareason.com/...ro-Netbook.html)

Laptop built in wireless adapter - wlan0 ath9k[mac80211]-N/A Atheros Communicaitons Inc. AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01)

OS - BT5 R1 Linux bt 2.6.39.4 x86_64 GNU/LINUX

Pineapple - AP51 MK3 v2.0.1

2nd external wireless adapter - wlan1 Alfa (from hakshop) rtl8187[mac80211]-N/A Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8187

3) Could there be a conflict between the two WiFi NIC's because they're both trying to use the "mac80211" stack at the same time?

1. My 2nd wireless adapter is used to deploy airdrop-ng for mass deauth.

2. I really dislike the GUI managers because when two wireless nic's are connected it auto connects both adapters to OPEN wifi networks. Even when /etc/init.d/interfaces remains commented.

3. I meant provide an internet source to the pineapple by first connecting the laptop itself to the internet

I dont see how this is pineapple related.

use the wicd network manager is the gui way to manage connecting to wireless/lan.

You cannot setup ICS with the pineapple by connecting it to WiFi.

not sure what you mean by auto connects both adapters to OPEN wifi networks.

if you are trying to setup a pineapple ICS setup. Connect to the internet serving WiFi with wicd, and plug in the lan card to the pineapple with a cable and manually ifconfig the static ip to that.

Setup ip forwarding and away you go.

For deauthing, just the other interface or the pineapple itself.

BT5R1 is not supposed to connect to any internet connections on any wired or wireless adapters except the lo (loopback) by default - for privacy when beginning a pen test. When I boot my netbook (with both wifi adapters physically connected 1 internal / 1 physical connected to usb) it auto connects and both adapters join the nearby open wifi networks. It's a real pain the ass.

I'd just like to get that behavior to stop.

And I'd really like to know why dhclient wlan0 and iwconfig aren't working manually.

Telot has the 'dhclient wlan0" grabbing an IP manually in his script but i can't get mine to do the same...

That's interesting... thanks, I'll definitely be giving that a try.

Just as an aside, I've seen BackTrack, and Ubuntu, run dhclient on all the network adapters, even if you specify a single one. Easiest way around this is to give all your devices a static address.
