A (cheap) 20 minute Rogue AP

I recently dug up my MK5 pineapple and gave it a firmware update.. upon doing so i thought..why not do something cool with it?

I had big plans for it at first, with a full fledged solar panel, lots of soldering and even a tiny wind turbine for running outside. Of course when i make things like this i like to draw up a diagram(my inner graphics nerd). So , i first came up with...

I had gotten a bit complicated with it already, a pretty big project for something so simple. Luckily, i had gotten one of these for christmas

So the solar panel part was taken care of already. I had basically everything else i needed. I laid it all out to see if all would work together before jamming it into a case(the case im using is probably not weatherproof). As of no i have no GSM dongle to use, but that may be added in the future.

(this is a googletv case, originally what i thought about using)

Its connected like this:

4000mah battery > 1000mah battery w/ solar panel > usb hub > beagle/pineapple.

I figure this setup was good, because it gives me a sort of "double buffer" before i run out of power( please tell me if this is a bad idea or what, i honestly do not know..)

For now, i have it setup like this..

I let it run, it lasted about 30 minutes before it died. I was able to connect to the kali board from the pineapples managemant AP.

For the future, i noticed it was getting kinda hott in there. So i want to include a fan, i actually have one of these

in my posession, but its 12v so i need a "5v to 12v step up". Im not sure how ill control that either, considering its a 4pin cpu fan i could either include an arduino(for even moar boards!) or write something on the beagle. 4pin fans like this CAN control the fan speed from the board their attached to, with a temp sensor attached to either the beagle or arduino, i could speed up the fan as it gets hotter, or slow it down. Would be cool..

If anyone knows a good GSM dongle i can use, that would be awesome. I did all this in about 20 minutes of playing around. Its basically fully functional, ready to mess around with clients.

I just joined today, but god i love me some haxxor toys.

I gave such a solar power pack to my niece for christmas. Problem is that I think the solar panel is 0.7W and the components in the box will consume quite a bit more than that so it's insufficient for perpetual unattended operation even when placed in an area that's lit 24/7. But it should still stretch the lifespan a bit. It works better outside the box though, transparent or not.

The pineapple's chip is a bit of an electric heater, but it can cope with heat fairly well. I'd place the thing upside down so convection can help move the heat away a bit. Did you try running the fan off of 5V? Maybe it just ends up spinning slower.

Are you doing anything to keep the various components in position?

I didnt think about flipping the pineapple upside down, ill have to try that. I did try running the fan off 5v and it wouldnt even spin up, as for how things are being kept in place, the cables that are all over the place abd kind of keep things pushed against the walls,held in place. The only thing that moves around is the battery

For experimental purposes i have it propped up on my desktop.

Wifi card = TP LINK ( I use it with Nethunter on my phone)

I am wondering how to scan with wlan2(like with the recon tab, i dont know if it uses one by default or the other) instead of wlan1 as its range should be longer. I would just plug the cantenna into the pineapples port but its using a "male"(?) plug on the card like an Alfa. I might just get an adapter so i can just plug the cantenna in.
