Using the Mk5 as a wifi relay

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, in an attempt to learn how to use the pineapple I want to use the pineapple as a wifi relay to connect my home wifi to my phone when I am in school (cracking the schools wifi is most likely frowned upon). I only live 1.3 - 1.5 miles from my school, so my thought was to have a large antenna at my house connected to my desktop/router and 2 smaller ones on the pineapple in my locker so I can connect to it whenever I'm in school.

My questions are, how large of an antenna do I need? Will my metal locker interfere with the wifi? I have watch this hak5 video but didn't completely understand it, could someone give a much more simplified description of the video?

Thanks for all the help,

~ Sam

Here's what you do and it's not as hard as you think.. Get in trouble with one of your teachers and get sent to the principals office.. When you are waiting in the lobby and the secretary gets up to go to the bathroom or something, quickly run over to her desk. Above one of the drawers there should be a pull out table of sorts. There should be a piece of paper taped on there with all of the passwords. Trust me, this never fails and it is far cheaper than buying a roof antenna for your router.

Seriously though, I had an imagination like that back in school. All I can say is to give it a shot. If you fail you will learn from your mistakes and you will know more than when you started.

Metal locker = Faraday cage

1.5 miles on a farm isn't so bad but 1.5 miles in the city = a lot of interference.

Yeah... I think the current password is "pencil"... :)

Unless you can setup an equally large antenna at your school that distance is probably too far. But by all means test it out and tell us what you find.

Haha yeah, but thats not the point. I could easily bruteforce the wifi password, but where's the fun in that!

Thanks for the reply,

the only way to do it, would be a direction antenna at both school and at home, mounted on the roof or somthing, with line of sight between school and home. its just not practicle.

You would be better off using your schools internet, and if there are restrictions you want to bypass use a tunnel or vpn, most schools dont block this, based on my experience.

Lots of schools that I have dealt with will throw down a Porn Challenge of something like that. They offer some sort of non monetary prize if you can show the teacher porn on the pc from the internet. It's usually done in one of the computer classes. It's a good way to get the students to reverse pen-test your firewall for nothing more than "extra credit". Usually vpn tunnels are locked out.
