Failing To Tether With Win7

Recommended Posts

My LAN adapter is at 172.16.42.42, mask 255.255.255.0, no gw, 8.8.8.8 DNS

I'm using my WiFi adapter to share (ICS) - setting my LAN to be the adapter leeching internet from the wifi adapter.

But... when I'm in the pineapple web intefrace, the device can't connect to anywhere outside the local lan.

That did not help. I'm in the Modules menu, trying to get a list of the available modules, and...

Warning:  file_get_contents() [function.file-get-contents]: php_network_getaddresses: getaddrinfo failed: Name or service not known in /www/pineapple/modules.php on line 92

Warning:  file_get_contents(http://wifipineapple.com/downloads.php?moduleList) [function.file-get-contents]: failed to open stream: Address family not supported by protocol in /www/pineapple/modules.php on line 92

One more thing... I'm at the 1.1.1 firmware

Setup ICS on the host machine and run these commands on the advanced page of the Pineapple. Make sure the cable from the ICS host is plugged into the PoE port.

/etc/init.d/firewall disable

/etc/init.d/firewall stop

You will have internet on the Pineapple after setting this up properly.

ICS was set up. LAN port was 42.42, the commands you suggested were suggested by others before you and that did not help.

In order to obtain internet connection I had to plug my Router's LAN port to the WAN port of the pineapple - so it would get dhcp ip from my router and have internet.

I had the same issue it was a firewall issue. since my wlan on my pc is setup to home network and my Ethernet is a public network i disabled the firewall on public networks but kept it on for home/work networks. I would like to see if I can just disable the firewall on the Ethernet port and no matter what network I connect to with my laptop the wlan is always fire walled.
