Can't Get Ics To Work With Wifi Pineapple Mkiv

Recommended Posts

I've connected the Pineapple to the Ethernet port on my laptop and to the PoE port on the Pineapple. I've tried every way possible to configure and re-configure the ICS but when I connect to the Pineapple with any other device I cannot access the internet.

Pineapple Hardware Version: MarkIV

Pineapple Software Version: 2.4.1

OS used to connect to the pineapple: Windows 7

Network layout of how your setup is connected (including IP information): I'm connected to the wireless router and I'm assigned the IP 192.168.1.109 with DHCP. The Ethernet port on my PC is statically configured with IP 172.16.42.42 with an Ethernet cable connecting the PC Ethernet port to the PoE port on the Pineapple.

All the tools/options that are running on the pineapple when the issue happened:

Wireless enabled

MK4 Karma enabled

Autostart enabled

Everything else is disabled by default

Ping results from computer to pineapple:

When I ping 172.16.42.1 I get "Destination host unreachable"

Pings are successful when I 172.16.42.42 which I know isn't suprising but figure I would include it anyway

Is the problem repeatable (Yes/No): Yes

Steps taken which created the problem:


  1. Plug power into wifi pineapple


  2. Plug ethenet cable into PoE port on pineapple


  3. Plug eithernet cable into ethernet port on PC


  4. Under network connections: Right click on PC ethernet port, click on properties, click IPv4 change static IP to 172.16.42.42, Netmask 255.255.255.0, Default Gateway Blank, and DNS 8.8.8.8


  5. Under network connections: Right click on wifi connection, click on sharing tab, check the box that allows other network users to connect through this commputer's internet connecton

Error Messages: When I try to connect to the internet with another PC, Mac OSX, Android device, etc. the page is unavaiable

Log file information:

System Log:

Anything else that was attempted to 'fix' the problem: Not that I can think of

Thanks for any help you can provide!

Lets see:

On windows, once you share an internet connection, the IP settings change back.

Can you ping the pineapple? Does a ipconfig confirm the correct IP?

I am just going out of the blue here but is your PC called Shawn-PC? If so, it is trying (and getting) an IP of 172.16.42.224.

Best Regards,

have you tried step 5 before step 4 as windows 7 assigns an ip to the lan card after you enable sharing
