Upingable Mk Iii

Recommended Posts

Hi there!

I'm only able to connect to the pineapple's UI by connecting to the 'pineapple' AP then viewing the WebUI from the /pineapple URL. If connected to eth0 I am unable to ping, or otherwise connect to it.

This happened to be once before, and after a factory reset (via WebUI) the box was completely unusable. does not show on LAN, is unpingable, and pineapple SSID doesn't show - even after waiting 30mins+.

Have I 'bricked' my pineapple by not being patient enough after a factory reset? how long should one expect to wait? anything I can try short of reflashing it again?

This is on an AP51 btw, flashed DIY style from Windows.

I would suggest flashing with the newest Mark III firmware and then we can troubleshoot from there. If you set your card to to flash, you will need to set it to subnet: and a *blank* gateway in order to talk to it over a wired connection. You could also double check those settings before flashing. After the flash the wired port is and not the that was used to flash it.

If I force the wired connection to have the ip on my box (BT5r2) and connect to the pineapple, I get an error and it times out. If I leave it to auto-discover IP it also times out. Maybe a reflash is in order. Do I need to reflash every time I do a factory reset? Or was it, as suspected, due to my lack of patience when doing factory reset?

I will try reflashing it when I get home this evening. Was hoping my MKiv would turn up today (see my other thread from today...)

After much tinkering, I finally managed to get it to reflash (seemingly I had to reinstall Winpcap and the machine, every time I restarted attempts at flashing)

Now I'm back to the same problem as before. can see the pineapple AP. can't connect to it via ethernet, but can when connected via the pineapple SSID.

any thoughts?

hoping MK IV arrives soon and I can turn MK III into a dedicated deauthing box or something. Or a paperweight.

Re-downloaded wp3.sh just in case it was corrupt or something somehow - but still the same problem. here's the output:

Double checked via ifconfig that my ethernet interface is definitely eth0 and am out of ideas as to what else might be wrong. this is on a freshly flashed AP51 with the latest MK III firmware.

Has worked previously, so not sure what's going on.

As said before, the pineapple SSID shows up when I scan and when I connect via that I can access the pineapple web UI.

Thanks in advance dudes!

Edit: Tidied up

Static IP you need to set on your computers ethernet adapter is

Static IP of the router is and will always be:

IPs of your clients should always be: 172.16.42.XXX

Are all of these things true? If in linux run ./wp3.sh multiple times - I don't know why but on my mark3 I have to run it 4-5 times before I get pings back (mystery to me...). If on windows - please walk through the steps you took to setup the static IP and ICS.

When you connect to said pineapple and can reach the pineapple control console, can you also access the internet?

telot I had the same problem with having to run wp3.sh many times for the mark3

I found if I turned on the mark3 and waited 3 or 4 minutes then plugged in the ethernet and ran the script soon after, I would always connect.
