Blue For The Pineapple


Recommended Posts

First off, AP51 is Mark III.

Honestly, No.


Very limited. Not flexible for antennas, power, storage. Firmware may work, but not specifically tuned for the device. Only 1 ethernet port (can't do in-line "Interceptor"). Runs off 5V USB standard which tells me low power so not beefy power wise unlike the AP121U (Mark IV) which uses 12V standard.

I agree with Mr-Protocol.

The guy openly states its a cheap clone, and its an alternative for students and people low on fund$.

In the comments he openly encourages people to buy the original Pineapple if they can afford one.

Also, its bit of a do it yourself job, you might make a mistake, have trouble getting it to work?

I'd say most people are willing to pay for a plug n play device. Hak5 wins here!

It's not a matter of winning. Remember we didn't originally sell these. It wasn't until being hounded that I started doing Mark 1's on commission, which eventually grew to what we have now (and thank God - it's kept Hak5 afloat and brought us awesome stuff like the Mark4 and beyond).

I encourage anyone with the geekery to attempt this feat - you'll learn a lot. Andy has done a great job of documenting a hack that I can only feel flattered by.

I just wish the realities of the situation allowed us to offer a truly economical pineapple for hackers and students, but we're no TP-Link and that router is only certified in China for a reason. I spoke to the manufacturer about getting it FCC'd for us here in the states but no dice.
