koolkarnt Posted September 9, 2015 Share Posted September 9, 2015 I purchased a Mark V a while ago and recently have dusted it off and set to playing once more. I updated it to the new 2.4 firmware the other day and pretty much its been a hell bent on doing unusual things. I first got sus when it refused to boot up on power supply from wall. it kept boooting, then blue light and orange (ethernet) would get solid with the green about to flash.. then they go off, red comes on and then restarts. over and over. Put it on Battery and it starts no problem. So flashed it. no worrys. once I logged back on, setup my password etc, i click client mode on wired LAN, then jab it into my router and. reboot. now we have internet to the pineapple. Cool. Down load infusions. Head out to coffee shop to play with this portalauth.. connect to pineaplpe see i dont have dependencys. fine. connect to my phone grab those and then attempt to connect to coffee shop. ignores me.. goes back to phone. -- no pineapple. I says connects to this one. there, save.. click click! i watch the light go off. on.. restarted. check. ignored me. Orly??? ok. factory reset. flash flashy resetup. redo connection to phone. same deal. wont let go. Fine. might be a freak thing. go home. never connected to my home wifi yet. go to client mode. scan scan.. - no home network. the 11bgn not hiding at all so getting concerned. maybe it needs to see it to beleive its there. relocate. Nothing. ok.... have a break come back. pineapple is now frozen. lights on no one home. wifi broadcast gone. nothing going on. reboot. etc etc no luck with Internet sharing via mac with static IP 172.16.42.42 on ethernet being shared internet by the wireless. OK some more fun. New reflash but first we will wipe the SD card. - done. reflash. resetup. install wps. install wifite. run wifite. see's my network.. (spoooky) reports no wps weakness... Use actual tile. no ssid data. nothing. scan in client mode. nothing. does find a no name open encryption but its conflicting with the channel. the fact it doesnt let go of networks is very annoying. i almost go this portal clone thing working but then it went weird again and stopped showing the clone button etc. the network restarts notfications are liers. only a solid off on will make the changes stick. had no succes with much of anything. its simular to a issue from 2013, thou I couldnt see any of the problems in any configs posted or corrections offered. Back a few firmwares ago I didnt have any of these problems. - not to mention the fact i now have wlan0, wlan0-1 and wlan1 which becomes wlan1mon.. whcih was not this way before. factory reset and firmware upgrades seem to made this a new part but I dont know when or whats going on. Any ideas? does turning it off and on to much hurt it? i assumed its all solid state so I cant imagine that being a issue. antennas are firmly in place as always no changes made to hardware it self. after a while it just stops doing anything as I say. so even if I did get wps going or half a dozen other deployment concepts its going to lock up and stop after a few hours or less and I loos all the data anyway. I know its not ment to be easy but this is doing my head in. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
