I like using my TL-WN722N V1 with my TETRA as it allows for an external antenna if needed. But also use a Ralink USB WiFi RT5370 now and then.

Humm...anything on DMESG? or... can you prove a working device by using on another machine? and also can you confirm a working USB port on the tetra with a USB storage/GPS/4Gmodem/RTL-SDR etc.?

I have 3 tetras (they keep sending me ones that have power over usb issues)

It seems very unlikely (not impossible just unlikely) that hak5 would ship 3x faulty units, if they all have no voltage on the USB port is it possible you have been connecting something that draws more current than the tetras USB port can deliver and popping the VREG inside?

Let me clarify,

all 3 do not work with the WiFi adapters. 

The voltage issues were when running from USB power (micro) using the Y cable to a laptop or battery. 

When you do recon or a deauth it would reboot

With 12 v cord it’s fine. 

 

The standard USB2 port will not power on the new tplink USB wlan adapter 

i have another usb wlan adapter that shows power to its LED but not life beyond that.

Ahh makes much more sense

Its most likely a driver issue though. from the wiki -

Quote

Compatible chipsets include RaLink RT2800 devices, as well as some Atheros and RealTek devices. Wireless adapters from HakShop.com are certified to work with the WiFi Pineapple.

The V1 I use is an Atheros device.

I got the wireless card from HAK5 at DEFCON for free and when i plug it in it is automatically recognized as wlan2. The issue i have is the network i want to connect it to is hidden and if i scan it doesnt show up. If i go to the WIRELESS file and manually add config to connect to the hidden wpa2 wireless it does not get an ip or connect. Is there a command i am suppose to run after making changes to the wireless file?
