Hi, bought a mk IV pineapple from the hakshop. Received and began testing, failed to get tethering set-up with an htc one x but could access the pineapple's web interface without problems via wifi on a friends mac running snow leopard. The next day I tested on my windows 7 laptop and could not connect via ethernet or wifi. The pineapple is broadcasting but windows fails to identify the network and cycles through failed connection attempts. Ping response is fine.

I think the problem emerged after I tried to connect to the pineapple before the wps light had stopped flashing. I've since read on these forums that this can cause problems. Is this the cause of my connectivity problem and is there anyway around it apart from flashing the unit? I don't really want to buy a usb to serial cable unless there is no other option and I've already tried the reset button. BTW the manual should really include information about the correct bootup procedure!

Thanks

check with ur firewall could be blocking the connection...

try to set it was to alow 172.16.42.1 to 172.16.42.500 range and see if this works

OT but why would you set firewall to allow 172.16.42.1 to 172.16.42.500 when there are only 255 addresses?
