Recon mode troubles

Recommended Posts

When I first got my nano, I was using windows and everything worked great. I was able to use recon mode along with all the modules I was trying.

Last night, I installed Kali on my machine and hooked up the nano to that. I have an ethernet cable plugged into the laptop and wifi turned off.

When I run the wp6 shell script, it runs me through the the steps and it connects without issues. I can get to the Internet, the pineapple, and load bulletins just fine.

 

The issue I am running into now is when I try and run "Recon Scan". I just keep getting "There was an error starting Recon. Please try again."

 

Am I doing something wrong or have I forgot to do something in linux that is different than windows?

 

Before I run the wp6 command:

I went through the same steps when setting it up and can access the webui just fine. It seems though like an interface is being used or hasn't been started like it should have which is why recon mode isn't starting?

The reason I noticed this was because I had PineAP running for about 2 hours before I tried to actually connect to one of the rebroadcast SSID's and it wouldn't let me connect to any of them which leads me to think there is an interface issue somewhere.

How are you powering the Nano.  A lot of problems with the nano lead back to not enough power?  If you laptop usb is only putting out 5v1a then you will run into things that wont work because the power is just not enough.

Wouldn't the power be the same regardless of the OS? I have both male USB ends plugged into two USB slots on the laptop on the Y adapter. The other female end is connected to the nano itself.

This setup worked fine when running it in Windows but it sounds like you are saying that a laptop in general cant put out enough power even when having both cables hooked up?

I think what b0N3z is saying is that the symptoms you describe sound similar to having power issues. From what you describe it could also be something to do with the Micro SD card.

Does the problem persist over reboots? Have you tried a factory reset? Reformatted the SD from the Pineapple GUI?

Some more detail might help narrow it down to the root cause.

@Just_a_User that is correct the problem sounds like a power issue that is why I suggested that.  Also you didnt specify how you powered it so it was just one idea on getting it work and does it persist with a reboot?

Thanks both, I didn't mean to sound hostile, was just trying to question the response for my own sanity :)

I left the SD card intact and just reset the nano back to factory. It appears to be working now without issue. Seems like the golden fix with these things is just to factory reset when any issues arise.

Issue resolved.
