Nano not working anymore?!

Hey there again,

After a time of not using the nano I tried to attach the nano to my laptop again.

BUT....the nano did not work :S and I can't figure out what the problem is so I need help!

When I attach the nano to my laptop with the USB-Y cable like before the blue LED is hardly visible, at least not as bright as before and not blinking or any activity noticable.

The nano shows up as a network adapter stating network cable not attached.

The GUI is not reachable (at 172.16.42.1:1471 at least).

Any suggestions on how to solve/where to start?

I have tried everything from this thread:

https://forums.hak5.org/index.php?/topic/37210-just-bricked-my-nano-howto-unbrick/

Both factory reset as well as connecting with reset button pressed.

But nothing seems to work :(

Although I think I made some progress.

When first connecting the Pineapple to my Linux box it stated in dmesg that USB was over-current. After a cleaning with air this message turned into:

dmesg extract:

Trying to reach the webGUI doesn't work

Trying to SSH to the Pineapple doesn't work (ssh root@172.16.42.1)

ssh: connect to host 172.16.42.1 port 22: No route to host

Please help with further suggestions.

(NOTE: I am a newb in Linux, so all command are just copying and trial and error in my case)

Thans for your help Cheeto.

I've tried the same steps on another computer (my work laptop in this case).

Also no succes, the adapter keeps stating that a network cable is not connected.

The GUI or SSH is not reachable.

Also I find it very suspicious that the blue LED is not als bright als before (and definitely not blinking or any action what so ever).

I've contacted support and referenced to this thread.

I was having major problems with the Nano until the 1.0.6 update. Now it's absolutely flawless! I use an Alfa AWUS036NEH adapter as the backbone Client mode. It's a lot easier than bridging connections. I heavily modify my Nano so it picks up about 120+ access points from where I'm usually sitting.
