Kafoowe Posted May 11, 2016 Share Posted May 11, 2016 So this is how one person explains how this works. What your phone actually does is walk around shouting out "Is Cost Coffee WiFi here?!?!" or "Is Starbucks WiFi here?!?!" and so on for all the networks in your remembered list. Once it finds a network that it remembers it will connect to it and stop worrying about finding another until you're disconnected. Whilst this is fine in most normal circumstances, an access point will respond with "No I'm not Costa Coffee, I'm Dave's WiFi", the Jasager firmware running on the Pineapple is different. The WiFi Pineapple will actually respond with "Of course I'm Costa Coffee, please connect to me..." and at that point your phone happily believes what it's been told and connects to the "Costa Coffee" WiFi. So here's my question. If the original coffee shop "Costa coffee wifi" was wpa encrypted and it's the only wifi access point on this person phone, who obviously has the wpa code on his phone. Can pineapple still connect to him even though the phone is looking for "Costa coffee wife" wpa vs "Costa coffee wifi" unlocked Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
