xathor Posted July 1, 2012 Share Posted July 1, 2012 (edited) I have a Pineapple Mark IV, connected to it via USB is an Alfa wifi adapter. I have taken the Alfa card (wlan1) and connected it to my home wifi router that has an address of 192.168.1.1. I have given wlan1 the ip of 192.168.1.173 with a 255.255.255.0 subnet. On the Pineapple, I connect via Wifi to it. It's ip is 172.16.42.1. Now if I do a ping 192.168.1.1 on the pineapple I get nothing. By default the 'route' looks like so: Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface default 172.16.42.42 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 br-lan 172.16.42.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 br-lan 192.168.1.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 wlan1 So I do a 'route add default gw 192.168.1.1' and 'route del default gw 172.16.42.42' ... which leaves me with: Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface default 192.168.1.1 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 wlan1 172.16.42.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 br-lan 192.168.1.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 wlan1 Now I can ping out to external IP's by both IP and name on the pineapple. Now, on a client connected to the pineapple. I can reach the web interface but I can't ping the distant router 192.168.1.1. I can, oddly, do a tracert on the client and DNS resolves a hostname. If I do on the client (a computer connected to the pineapple via wifi) 'tracert google.com' I get Tracing route to google.com [18.104.22.168] over a maximum of 30 hops: 1 3 ms 1 ms 1 ms Pineapple.lan [172.16.42.1] 2 * * * // Ctrl-C here I've tried playing with route but I am not that knowledgeable on it. Any help? :) --thanks Edited July 1, 2012 by xathor Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
