Hi,

This may be a bit of a silly question, but I am having trouble with getting to web interface of brand new WiFi Pineapple Mark IV . I have tried following instructions for Windows and Linux from basic shared internet setup, with no luck ( cant even ping 172.16.42.1) I have tried leaving it on DHCP but the IP i get given is rubbish along the lines of 192.168.2.234 and not 172.16.42.100-150 that i am supposed to be getting. I tried manually setting the IP something like 172.16.42.150 and still no luck, and i still cant ping 172.16.42.1. I have tried reseting the pineapple using the reset button in a hope it would revert back to giving out right IP with no luck.

Any tips on what i am doing wrong?

Thanks :)

Can you get to the wifi pineapple home page "172.16.42.1/pineapple" ?

If you can I would recommend you update to the latest version.... If your trying to share internet I recommend this video:

No sorry, 172.16.42.1/pineapple is unreachable and times out. That is the problem, I can't see it, nor can I ping 172.16.42.1. I can see the "Hornet" SSID but even when I connect wirelessly, I get wrong IP (eg 192.168.2.234) and still cant get to 172.16.42.1/pineapple, to even try to update the pineapple.

It is as if the DHCP is broken and keeps giving out weird IP, but when I try to manually set one to something within pineapple's range I still cant see the 172.16.42.1/pineapple.

from what you said "Hornet" this is a stock board and is not flashed with the pineapple firmware yet, if you got this from the hakshop I would contact them and maybe a replacement or if your willing to attempt to flash it under there instructions.

I know the ones that come with openwrt can sometimes be flashed just like how the mk4 firmware does it.

Thank you, I will double check when I get home but I am almost 100% sure that the SSID last night was "Hornet". It is from hakshop, I just received it about 4 days ago. I will shoot them an email than to see what they think I should do next.

Thanks again
