5ghz USB

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone has a decent fully working 5ghz USB antenna for the nano. I currently have my pineapple setup in a little tactical-ish bag with a headless pi3 and a dualband Alfa card. Originally the pineapple was using the Alfa and the pi was using a cheap dualband usb I found on Amazon, but it turns out the cheapo stick is incredibly low power, and the pineapple doesn't seem to be able to utilize the Alfa card that well (some modules cant use it or scanning doesn't seem to work right with it, or it's possibly not getting enough power to be worth it) so I switched the Alfa over to the pi but the crappy USB antenna I had on the pi doesn't seem to work at all with the pineapple, so I'm wondering if anyone has found any decent, preferably compact, dualband usb antennas that work with the nano. As I said the nano is in a small bag, so I prefer to use it as an access point with wlan2 (the USB) in wireless client mode. The USB port is connected to the pi (doesn't use the pi for power, just gives it an Ethernet connection so I can say in and use tools like wifite) which is why I'm using it in client mode, aside from it also just being easier to drag around without a laptop or wires going to my phone. My reason for wanting dualband is for 5ghz deauthing, handshake capturing, and for use with wireless client mode (I basically use it as a range extender half the time lol)

The nano is a 2.4ghz only device so currently does not work with 5ghz accessories. The Tetra would be a better device for that you describe.

@Just_a_User the Nano itself is, but connecting a 5GHz USB device and using it through CLI is all possible, not through a GUI though.

I used the Alfa Long Range Dual-band AC1200 USB3.0 Wireless Adapter.

@moliata
a question regarding the connection of AC1200 to the pinapple nano
Did you install a driver?
If I connect an AC1200 to the nano it will not be recognized by the nano (but not on a TETRA either).
Since both have only one usb 2 port, which supports max 500mA it could be a problem with the power consumption (a Y-cable with additional power supply didn't work either).
An AWUSS036NHA and AWUS036NH work on the nano without problems (both USB 2 and 2.4GHz). An AWUS1900 does not work either (USB 3 and 2.4/5GHz).

Do you have a tip for me on how to get the AC1200 running on the nano?

I will experiment a little over Easter and see what I can find out.

Find the driver used by the usb wifi and if openwrt has a driver its a simple fix of just installing it over shell.
