Mark IV firmware 3.0.0 no root access


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

Another question while I'm getting to learn the Pineapple.

The Pineapple seems to keep losing root access. After resetting the Pineapple, I change to root password. I can connect to the web UI and SSH with the new root password. However, after a longer period powered down, I cannot login to root anymore. Not with the new password and not with the default password. I have to reset the Pineapple and start all over again.

Anyone else have seen this?

So after a reset I can SSH into the Pineapple as root user using the deafult password. I can also access the Web UI using root/default password.

I then change the default password using the Web UI.

Without turning off the power of the Pineapple I can SSh into the Pineapple as root user using the new password. I can also acces the Web UI using root/new password.

However, when I take the power off and turn it back on say a day later, I can no longer access the Web UI or SSH into the Pineapple using root/new password or root/default password.

I need to reset the Pineapple and make all my configuration changes again (including changing the default password).

Hope this clarifies. When it happens again I will post screen shots.

Okay, so the Pineapple does remember the root password, but that is about it :(

In Karma it keeps forgetting the SSID I set (even though I click persistent). Another thing is that the date/time is not remembered. Every time it is set back to 01-01-1970.

Anyone else have this?
