Range of WiFi Pineapple Mark V Standard


Recommended Posts

I know this may sound like a snarky answer, but it's really not meant as such...

I depends. Its like asking how long is a piece of string.

Most consumer grade wifi AP's should work to 100 - 300 meters at best under test condition.


The factors affecting the range are thing like.

- Channel you use (in relation to what's used in the area)

- RF Interference (similar to the last but also covers non-wifi technologies)

- Terain and Environment (by the Sea, in the country, built up city?)

- Elevation of antennas (the higher you can place your pineapple the better)

- Weather (too Dry and range drops down, too Rainy and RF energy starts suffeing from absorption)

- Day or Night (Some of the affects above a cyclical and have a daily pattern)

Hope this is helpfull.

There's a couple threads on this already. I'll see what I can dig up. Holy crap the forum search sucks. 3mrgnc3 is right though, it depends on the local environment. I regularly get client associations from over 600 feet, but that's mostly free air. It is through a pretty heavy solid brick wall though. I see cars connect as they drive past and the road is that far away.
