Connecting ethernet directly to Router

Recommended Posts

When I connect the MKV to my router I can not access the control panel interface on the network nor when connecting to the broadcasting pineapple_xxxx AP, however when I disconnect it from the router I can connect via wifi. I can also connect when the MKV is connected directly to a computer.

Im not a routing expert (yet) I imagine this is due to an iptable or configuration which is looking specifically for the 172 block and the router is on 192, I see to recall this was much easier with the MKIV but dont remember if I configured things differently.

What I would like to do is connect the MKV to the router for internet and control panel access freeing the radios for testing.

Change the subnet on your router so it matches the pineapple's :D

On the router change the DHCP server settings


subnet mask


pool range

This way you don't have to setup eth0 mode: DHCP client
