lunokhod Posted January 21, 2014 Share Posted January 21, 2014 Hi Everybody, I'm still experimenting with my new Wifi Pineapple V and came across a scenario that I'd like some advice on. So far to get internet connectivity to my Mk V I have used internet connection sharing via a laptop connected directly to the Ethernet port and I have also configured wlan1 as a client to a nearby WiFi access point. Both of these methods have worked well. I'd also like be able to connect the Mk 5 to an existing wired LAN network (with internet access) via Ethernet and then access the Mk 5 via the network. This network has it's own DHCP server and router/gateway. As you know the Mk 5 has a fixed IP address and DHCP server to hand out IP addresses to clients.I'm thinking that I could possibly configure a DIP switch setting to disable the DHCP server on the Mk 5 at boot and enable dynamic addressing on the eth0 device. I could then find the IP address assigned to the Mk 5 via the gateway routers DHCP table.Has anyone else used a Mk5 in a situation like this?
