Problems connecting to Pineapple with Ethernet and ubutu laptop


Recommended Posts


I updated my post because all i really care about is getting connected w/ my ubuntu laptop.

I am trying to get my laptop to connect to the pineaple with the ethernet cable. I have been successful at connecting to the pineapple wirelessly with my desktop running win7 and my laptop running Ubuntu, but wireless only.

-Wired Ethernet

Laptop w/ubuntu

using address

Pineapple has latest firmware 2.7

Super quick start script not working for me

Regular quick start not working for me either. I get failed: nor route to host. chmod: cannot access 'wp4.sh' No such file or directory .

I can interface with the pineapple, but i can not get the pineapple to connect to the internet through the laptop

Do any of you get your wan light to come on?

It looks to me as though you are having problems running the wp4.sh script.

Try this:

Go here wifipineapple.com/wp4.sh (in firefox) to download the script. By default it should be saved to your Downloads directory.

Open a terminal (Control Alt T) and type:

cd Downloads

ls -al (verify the wp4.sh is in the directory)

sudo chmod +x wp4.sh

sudo ./wp4.sh

Once you correctly answer the questions the script asks your Pineapple should be fuctioning.

I lose my wired connection to the pineapple when I connect to my wireless router, any ideas?

If you are using the network connection manager in ubuntu, it will only bring up one logical interface at a time. That could be wired or wireless... You could use the "ifconfig" commands and the "iwconfig" commands to bring both up. Without knowing all of you interface names, I can't be exact. Basically it would be something like "ifconfig eth0 up" for the ethernet connection. The wireless is trickier when using some time of encryption (wep / wpa / wpa2). I suggest googling and looking up commands ifconfig and iwconfig which are both very useful. Make sure to set up the wifi adapters config first. ( "iwconfig wlan0 essid "example" "iwconfig wlan0 mode managed" *Just Examples* ) Before issuing the "ifconfig wlan0 up" command. If you forget a command just type "--help" behind the command for the syntax. ("ifconfig --help" or "iwconfig --help" ). Hope this helps... if not for Ubuntu and you are doing this in Windows 7 let me know. Anyways Happy Hacking and don't pentest a network that is not yours without an "ok" from the network admin * Friendly advice from a network admin *. ;)
