Stuck on "detecting wifi pineapple"

Recommended Posts

Trying to do internet connection sharing using Kali Linux 2. I did sudo ./wp6.sh and its stuck on Detecting WiFi Pineapple... I did a search and found a post saying I must switch a setting to BRIDGED but I dont know where to find that.

Any help would be most appreciated. Thanks again!

Nevermind. I figured it out. Not sure if its SUPPOSED to be this way but I load up wp6.sh and when it says CONNECTING... I pressed the little button on the back twice, and it worked that way.

Do you mean the rest button? That will just reboot your device. Interesting that that allowed your computer to figure out the routes.

This is the button I pushed twice : sAErMF5.jpg

So I setup the Tetra using the guide, then I downloaded all the modules by connecting it to my router via ethernet, then I tried to do internet sharing, So I disconnected the Tetra from my router, I went through the RECOMMENDED setup and when that was done, I tried to CONNECT and it got stuck there. I waited about 15 minutes before I pressed that button(out of curiosity) and about 45 or so seconds later it connected.

It is because the pineapple does not respond to ping ( perhaps iptables blocking it ) a quick fix is to get your pineapples MAC address and

alter the wp6.sh script (https://www.wifipineapple.com/tetra/scripts/wp6.sh ) from :

...

printf "Detecting WiFi Pineapple..."
until ping $spineappleip -c1 -w1 >/dev/null
do
...
to:
...
printf "Detecting WiFi Pineapple..."
until arp -a|grep -c "00:13:37:xx:xx:xx" > /dev/null
do
...
# Where the xx:xx:xx is alignet to your pineapples macaddress..

I am having the same issue but pressing the reset button did not do anything for me nor did altering the file. It just sits indefinitely. I should mention I’m on live usb kali with an external WiFi adapter

Just in case this helps anyone on Kali2 when running the wp6.sh script. It appears that the script tries to add the 'ip route', but for me it never did. So I went in and added the route manually: 'sudo ip route add 172.16.42.0/24 dev eth2'. Eth2 was the eth port my pineapple connected on when plugging in the micro USB. I then re-ran the script using the 'C' option (you may need to run the guided first) and then everything worked.

You can also check your routes by running: 'ip route' You should have something like this: '172.16.42.0/24 dev eth2 scope link'

I'm having this issue, and when I run ip route, its showing-

172.16.42.0/24 dev eth2 proto kernel scope link src 172.16.42.42

but wifi pineapple is still not detected when using saved settings, i just get the continued "................................................................."
