lunokhod Posted November 18, 2014 Share Posted November 18, 2014 (edited) Hi Everybody, I've been getting back into playing with my Wifi Pineapple Mk V in recent weeks. I'd like some ideas on how I can improve the reliability of the Mk V for unattended use... in particular the "access point" running on wlan0. Also wondering if others have experienced my symptoms. At the moment my Mk V is out in my car and it's connected to my works WiFi access point for internet connectivity using wlan2 (external Alfa radio), around 30 feet away. I have MK V Karma and Pine AP running... as well as URL Snarf on br-lan... just to see what people are doing with the "Free WiFi" service they find. I'm using my Nexus 5 as a guinea pig too... it too is connected to "Free WiFi". I get random devices connecting and I can see the log file in URL Snarf being updated.But from time to time I see no updates in the URL Snarf log file. I check my phone and I find it's connected to the work WiFi, instead of "Free WiFi". I can see "Free WiFi" in the list of available access points on my Nexus 5 and it's plenty strong... but when I try to connect, it immediately fails. Other WiFi devices I have at work also fail when trying to connect. A power reset seems to fix it... as does disabling/enabling radio0... but the fix does not "stick". It might work for a few hours... sometimes only 15 minutes. Today it's happened two times in the last three hours. I think a five hour stretch of "uptime" a few days ago was the record. What can I do to make the Mk 5 access point more reliable?? I'd like the confidence to be able to leave it all day... "gathering information". Lunokhod.
