Have had Pineapple Mk V for a month and cannot connect online.

here are my specs-

Sony Vaio laptop

Win 8.1

Alfa rtl8187 antennae

I use all the recommended settings for ethernet/wireless setup, ie internet facing set to shared, pineapple facing IPv4 set to etc

I have been over it a hundred times with the wiki page, pineapple university videos - my set up is 100% correct.

I have tried turning off firewall, reinstalling windows, unbricking/flashing pineapple etc etc etc - NOTHING WORKS

Could this be a faulty Pineapple and if so how do I find out if it is?

so you followed the http://wiki.wifipineapple.com/#!ics.md

specifically the Internet Connection Sharing for Windows

no Windows firewall or it is disabled or specifically allowed by IP?

no third party ex: McAfee / Symantec firewall / AV products installed or they are disabled or specifically allowed by IP or port (1471)?

if you've followed the ICS directions for Windows your LAN IP should be / and you should also have an internet connection probably WIFI from the sony to your internet router...this should facilitate the internet connection between the two devices on your laptop

connect to your MKV through the sony via SSH...assuming you know how to use putty.exe?

attempt to ping your internet router IP...successful? If not then there is something wrong with ICS.

I tested Win8.1 ICS procedures to see if there are any differences and notice a message confirmation that it automatically changes the Ethernet to a static IP of

Make sure your LAN adapter didn't get changed to If so change back to / and DNS

I had Symantec Endpoint Security installed and had to disable to get internet to work on MKV.
