[SOLVED] Initial setup not working

Hello all, I received my wifi pineapple mkV in the mail today, followed Darren's how to video of installing the firmware when something weird happened,

typed in my password and everything and then rather than saying "continue" the page timed out. I ignored this and refreshed the page, then the "set new password" screen came up again. So I typed a different one in and this ssuccessfully finished, I hit continue, but its now saying when I login as "root" that my password is incorrect. I tried both passwords and neither work. Yes I'm sure I am typing them in right.

How can I set the pineapple to reinstall the firmware and set a new password?

Alright I did that and got back to the set new password screen.

I'm getting the same error I got last time:

"The CGI process did not produce any response"

And again refreshing the page takes me back to the set a new password screen.

Oh and again (this time trying the same password the second time) I am presented with "Invalid username/password"

Quick question, are you using any special characters? If so, can you try without and / or let me know which special chars you used? It's possible somewhere a char gets caught...

Was just about to post when I got an email saying you posted. Haha

So I tried a new password with no special characters and iit works! You guys may want to fix that so I can have a real password on my pineapple. Haha

I used the characters "(" "%" and "|" along with uppercase letters.

Lowercase letters along with numbers seem to work fine.

It's probably the pipe not playing nicely. I'll fix it right away - will make it to 1.1.0 ;)
