Not Allowing Connections to Dummy SSIDs


Recommended Posts

So I think I'm getting closer to having a functional setup for the pineapple:

I've added a USB adapter to the Pineapple and I'm connecting to a legit WiFi access point in client mode. This gives the pineapple internet and it can report a public IP. I've added the Default Gateway of that connection as the default gateway for the pineapple statically in the interface.

When wired to the pineapple, I can use this third wifi access point (not WLAN0 or WLAN1) to connect to the internet through my laptop. So I can get to the pineapple and internet through the USB WiFi connection.

However, when Karma kicks in and Dogma creates dummy SSIDs, they cannot be connected to at all. Some of them don't work because, presumably, they use encryption and Karma doesn't handle that, but one of them, for sure, is an open AP. When i try to connect from the primary or secondary laptop, it says it cannot connect. Is it a DHCP problem? The connection is just flat refused, open or encrypted.

Also, is it possible to continue to broadcast the Pineapple admin SSID while doing karma/dogma at the same time? I haven't really had that work for me.

I am running the same setup and I have the same problem. My laptop via Wlan2 (usb wifi adapter) is connected to my home internet and drawing a 192.168.1.x address and I can get internet access. I left Wlan0 and Wlan1 alone so PineAP and Karma can use them. I plug directly into the MkV via eth0 for management.

Disappointing because I cannot get detailed information anywhere on how this infustion should be set up. At the very least I wish I could find more detailed information on how the MkV network connections are set up once an infusion kicks in.

I have re-flashed the pineapple so many times in hopes that would help but no luck. Kind of annoying. I think I should of waited for the MkVI or MkVII.

Hey guys. I've been noticing this as a common issue on the forums where clients are not able to connect to the Pineapple. One thing to keep note of is the fact that most routers seem to default to wireless channel 11 including the pineapple (this has been my observation and I could be wrong). Just to be safe, do a scan of the AP's that are broadcasting in ur vicinity and then choose a wireless channel for ur pineapple that isn't in use. I tend to choose 1 or 2. This may help allow devices to connect. Let me know if this helps or if u need more help. Cheers!

I have changed my home router to channel 1 to limit the interference for the internet connection between the pineapple and the router (on wlan2). How do I change the channel on the pineapple? From what I understand Wlan0 puts up the dummy SSID's so that is the interface that will need to have the channel changed. I keep an SSH connection up when I am using it but I cannot seem to find the command to change the channel. I really hope that the dummy SSID's are not getting an internet connection due to interference because that will mean that the pineapple is very under powered.

I'm away from my pineapple at the moment but I remember that it's where u set the admin broadcast name and the guest one. They will both take the same channel. In regards to ur question about the channel changing, it doesn't actually do that, it'll scan for the ssids via channel hopping but it'll have the devices connect on the channel that u select on the screen mentioned above. Also to note, if u set ur home wifi to channel 1, make sure to set ur pineapple to something like channel 3 if people in ur are are not using that one. The channels can conflict with slight overlap. For example channel 2 may conflict slightly with channel 1 and 3. And channel 3 may conflict if lots of channel 2 or 4 exist, etc. hopefully this helps. Let me know if ur still unable to find the correct tile. I can check when I'm home. Keep me in the loop of ur progress, I'll happily help. Cheers!

I have managed to get it working. I knew something was different when I noticed the Open Access point was showing no encryption on my wifi anaylyzer. The only thing I really did differently was put my home router on channel 1 and left the Pineapple on channel 11 (I had this setup previously but it did not work). I really think re-flashing it about 30 times made the difference. This Pineapple is really glitchy and does not always run smoothly. Sometimes I can connect to it, other times I can't. Sometimes the Deauth infusion works and other times it does not. I am afraid to load too many infusions because it gets really slow. I have had this thing about 10 days and this is the first time I have been able to get it working correctly. I hope the other infusions work more smoothly because this thing is about to be thrown in the junk pile in the office.

Thanks for the help, it was appreciated. Always good to have another person checking my thought process and set up.
