Use a tp link wr703n as a wifi card for pineapple?


Recommended Posts

Ok, lets say your in a situation were the wifi card dies and you need a secondary access point on the pineapple so you can use it, and all you have on you is a small openwrt device (for example tp link wr703n) and power comsuption wasn't an issue how exactly would you go about doing that?

At the moment i have the tp link as an access point and I have the pineapple connected to my tp link via poe ethernet port. One of the issues I had with it that I could not ssh to the pineapple while in ssh in the tp link router.

Edit; got it working. In /etc/config/network file on the tp link under 'lan' i switched 192.168.1.1 to 172.16.42.42. So when I connect to the tp link I would ssh into 172.16.42.1 and be talking to the pineapple.
