Wifi Pineapple Drops Connection !help!


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I hope someone can help me out. I just got my Wifi Pineapple and got it set up using Ethernet connected to PoE/LAN and Wifi sharing the internet, but after a few minutes on the pineapple control panel it drops my connection to the pineapple and to the internet. I am using it with Back Track 5 R3. Any help would be appreciated.

It could be a few things:

1. BT5r3 is acting up.

2. Ethernet cable is dodgy.

3. Ethernet Jack (laptop / pineapple) is dodgy

4. Combinations of the above

So I would test the pineapple out with a different ethernet cable first. Make sure it sits tight.

If that still fails, check your BT5 install. Re-install, run from usb / DVD / CD. Does it work now without dropping? If yes, faulty BT5.

If even that fails, try a different computer. I know that isn't always easy to get your hands on a different computer but try.

If it still doesn't work, report back, I am sure we can get this working.

Best Regards,
