ipconfig Posted April 15, 2013 Share Posted April 15, 2013 So I seem to be having a bit of a hit or miss issue w/ my pineapple and a windows 8 machine. I can always gain access to the pineapple with out an issue. However more times then not I can not get internet activity through it. I am connecting to the pineapple via Ethernet cord (none cross over). I have a wifi Alfa nic as my internet facing device. More times then not I get the ethernet as "limited" connection (I have the correct ip showing, I can surf to the pineapple no problem), and my wifi nic will show connected to my access point. This will give my computer internet access but not the pineapple. Out of the blue it will randomly connect and the ethernet will show connected internet access and everything will work perfectly. Not sure what is causing this but it is driving me bonkers. I have mark iv pineapple updated to latest firmware. Windows 8 I use Alfa wireless adapter for my pc to connect via wifi. I use ethernet to connect pineapple to pc. I do have the internet facing device set to share connect per the instructions in the booklet I do have the pineapple facing device set to 172.16.42.42 - 255.255.255.0 and 126.96.36.199 I also get the a message that dhcp is not connected when I am not able to connect to internet via pineapple if that helps. If I have windows look at it and diagonse it will ALWAYS put things back to automatic ip and dns vs Static. Anyways was if anyone has any tips and tricks I would love to hear them. As of now for the last 2 hours I can not get internet access via the pineapple. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
