slimjim2234 Posted September 29, 2012 Share Posted September 29, 2012 I have the pineapple mark IV and have been playing around with it, absolutely love it! :D About 2 weeks later after purchase, I screwed in the antennae just like normal, except it kept turning. Then I noticed that the RP-SMA connector was spinning too. I opened the router and found out that i coiled the wire and broke it (verified with a volt meter). So I ordered a new one from amazon for about 7 bucks (included 2 sets of U.FL to RP-SMA wires). Installed the new wire to the board, fit perfectly, mounted the connector back in the plastic hole next to the ethernet connectors and.... no go. The WLAN light will not light up anymore and I have these messages in the pineapple logs that have me worried. 00:01:01 Pineapple user.info sysinit: 'radio1' is disabled 00:01:01 Pineapple user.info sysinit: 'radio1' is disabled 00:01:01 Pineapple user.info sysinit: 'radio0' is disabled 00:01:00 Pineapple user.info sysinit: 'radio0' is disabled 00:00:55 Pineapple user.info sysinit: PHY for wifi device radio1 not found 00:00:55 Pineapple user.info sysinit: 'radio1' is disabled 00:00:55 Pineapple user.info sysinit: 'radio0' is disabled (As you've probably seen from the logs on your own router, the top entry is the most recent output) I hope I didn't short something further downstream in the board when the wire broke :( I don't know how to diagnose the problem from here. Can anyone help? Thanks! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
