Supported High Throughput Client Mode Radios


Recommended Posts

Yeah, it's the client mode stuff I can't seem to keep running for long. When the MK5 gets its signal via ethernet or a 4G modem, there is no perceptable speed difference with the MK5 or without it. With my MiFi 5510l connected to the MK5 via USB I've actually gotten 19 both ways. It was time of the night when Verizon's network wasn't busy.

I quit beating myself and the MK5 up over client mode. I don't need it. My favorite is actually sharing internet from a Win7 laptop to the MK5 via ethernet - then monitor that connection with Wireshark. Do that and you're getting full value from the MK5. Any information that's gettable, you'll get. Then when you're doing a managed PineAP attack, you're not using any wifi bandwidth in order to perform the management. Both radios are 100% dedicated to the customer. Err victim.

I think a big part of the problem with client mode is what you're a client of. It's adding an additional wireless AP into the mix. Sometimes the AP you're trying to use is poorly managed from the get go. In addition, an AP at McDonald's or Starbucks is crowded. So you're trying to grab this inconsistent resource and share it with others. Might not work real well.

I'm not saying that's the cause of all Client Mode's poroblems. Bound to be part of it though.

Hi guys,

I just got my AWUS036NEH (thank you HakShop for the QUICK delivery).

Is the AWUS036NEH designed to replace Wlan1? If so, t's not associating at least for me.

If it's made to replace wlan0 (Client mode) then I could say that it does an excellent job.

Is this correct?

Thanks guys!!

keep in mind, these higher power as in signal capturing are much stronger.and if your usb wifi is too close to the router, it will probably have issues. example, i have to unscrew my antenna on my usb wifi in order to lower the signal to get some ip leases an ics working properly. so if thats the same case as others, try it, or move further away from the router

Yes the default route is being updated properly.

I am starting to think its power issues I have tried a few different adapters and my NHA light is nice and bright blue but my H is dim green.

Edit: I am using 12V 1A to power the Pineapple.

The TL-WN722N actually is not working.

The Mark V sees it, I scan for AP with wlan2 , press connect, it goes through the connecting phase and finishes with "Connection initiated. See below for connection details." but below it just says "Not connected" and this is in fact the case; it is not connected.

I notice that after I press "Connect to this network" The blue light on the pineapple goes off for a second. I'm not sure if that is an indication of a malfunction or what.

Any ideas?

I experience slow through put speeds on my raspberry pi repeater...

my configuration is identical to a pineapple...

Has any one experience fast throughput speeds?

What you could try is a console base download speed test.

From your pinapple you can

wget http://testmy.net/dl-5000 -O /dev/null

Then from a linux machine run this same command... compare the time it takes both machines to finish...

From my pineapple it doesn't show the download speed. It takes a couple seconds longer on the pineapple than my laptop, which I expect since it's over usb.

Okay, connected my laptop as a client to the pineapple and got internet that way...

This is a generic alpha clone adapter I picked up at DefCon a few years ago.

This is the built in wifi.

This is straight off my laptop's wifi.

Pretty sure it's just the USB bus of the pineapple that's causing the slowdown.
