Recon only returning 1 result at a time

So I saw some people having issues with recon not returning any results, but that isn't my issue so I'm thinking it's a different problem.

When I first boot my nano and I do a recon scan everything is normal and I get a lot of results. If I let me nano run PineAP for a while collecting SSID's and all that, and then run another scan, it ends up returning only a single result at a time.

I ssh'd into the nano and deleted the recon-xxxxx files in /tmp and rebooted the nano. Everything seems to work fine again, but once again, after a little while it just goes back to presenting a single result.

Maybe I'm doing something wrong? But I'm fairly new to this so I wouldn't know what that is.

Any suggestion is welcome!

Yeah I'm on the 1.1.1 release. Like I said most of the time it seems to work fine. But occasionally it just stops providing multiple results. I restored the pineapple overnight and let it run and ran a scan this morning and everything seems to be fine, so maybe I was just doing something wrong?

Maybe it was another module or the fact that I disabled the management AP. I really don't know. I was probably misusing it, which at this point is a distinct possibility as I'm just starting out to learn this.

So I just ran another scan and again it's returning just a single result at a time. I've installed a few modules since then, but i haven't been running them. The only thing I can think is that somehow the scan is returning too many results and it can't handle it? That shouldn't be the case though. I mean there's a lot of access points where I live, but it's not -that- many.

If there's any troubleshooting steps that I can take to narrow this down and provide more useful information I'd be happy to do them. Suggestions anyone?

Can you SCP the /tmp/recon-* files off and post them (preferrably on pastebin)? You may want to clean the output first due to sensitive information inside these files.

I cannot explain why this is happening, as I haven't seen this before, but we'll get this sorted out I'm sure.

Sure can! http://pastebin.com/ef6pxt3s

All bssid's have been replaced with FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF, and all non-blank SSID's have been replaced with "WIFINAME" to protect the innocent.

There are three scans that I ran in that link. Each noted with the file name and time they were created (in chronological order). My pineapple is still in UTC time but basically the first I ran last night, then left my pineapple running overnight running the second and third one this morning.

After the third scan I'm unable to get more than one result at a time, though the SSID does tend to vary.

Okay, those files look correct.

Can you please run "airodump -i wlan1mon" and see if if that shows more than one network? If it does, can you run Recon again and see if the issue goes away?

I'm assuming you meant airodump-ng -i wlan1mon as airodump was an invalid command for me. 

Done. I let it run for a full minute but it's not showing any networks at the moment.

And now it seems the nano has locked up as neither the terminal nor the web interface are responding. The device is still lit solidly though.

For what it's worth, I'm having the **exact** same issues you're describing in the order that you've described them. I can reliably get my Pineapple to crash in the same way you've mentioned. 

While I doubt it's hardware (because I would hope software updates might address this problem) I am slightly worried regardless.

Is it still doing this? I put one on my home computer an it's been up for 21+hrs (with pine AP collecting SSIDs etc) and I just did a recon scan and gave me a full list of what is around. Is there anything else running on the nano? The one I just tested has fresh install with the latest firmware.

Same issue here, first recon scan works as expected, subsequent scans only return a single entry. The single AP found changes with each scan.

I'm running 1.1.1 and I've also updated the recon module through the manage modules section, I also updated one other system module but I can't remember which that was!

I see this problem on a brand new out of the box nano received today.  Sometimes it never ever returns the results and once that has happened the dashboard wont populate and it becomes largely unresponsive not to mention rather warm.

Updated to the latest firmware, recon and pinap straight from the box
