Well, the short answer, is no. It will only do 2.4ghz.

You can however plug in a proper client mode supportive USB wireless card into the pineapple's USB, and if the external USB NIC is n supportive, you will be good to go!

Also, here is a page of all the technical hardware info: https://wikidevi.com/wiki/Hak5_WiFi_Pineapple_Mark_V

Well let me clear my post up, n is usually backwards compatible via the target ap settings (g). Ac is backwards compatible for n.

So with the built in attacking / client mode rtl8187 interface, you can connect to the supportive 2.4ghz 'n' in its (if enabled via target ap settings ) g broadcast.

But the pineapples AP chip, supports native n. I haven't messed around much with forcing the AP chip into a client mode, but I'd have to assume it would be a bit problematic

But if you don't feel confident in building your kernel for support of your nic, don't do it yoursel then. Wouldn't want ya to brick your device.

And nor do I want to feel responsible for a brick of the device. Most I could suggest is to talk with Seb or Darren, to see if their help could be provided. If not, then I'd suggest using a different supported card. There is a thread around here somewhere, of supported high throughput client mode devices

In case if I missed it, and skimmed too fasly over what's already built and on the pineapple. Seb just posted in another thread but for an AC nic. Might be with a shot

The drivers are installed already - it's just a matter of running "wifi detect > /etc/config/wireless && wifi".

Then it should show up as wlan2.

Best Regards,

Sebkinne

If not, then sorry, the drivers aren't built into the fw.

I tried wifi detect > /etc/config/wireless && wifi .

It shows an error, command failed: Device or resource busy (-16)

wpa_supplicant_setup_vif(wlan1): Refusing to bridge sta mode interface
enable_mac80211(radio1): Failed to set up wpa_supplicant for interface wlan1
And Sebkinne, I searched for drivers in the opkg list, There were other drivers but i could find a driver for RTL 8188 WLAN adapter
