I recieved a Pineapple Nano for my birthday a couple of weeks ago. Excietd at I was, I booted it, installed the firmware and everything was working well until I decided to reboot it. When I did, the LED started blinking really rapidly and would not stop. I followed these instructions

 also to no avail. I'm running Debian stretch with the most recent version of Firefox. Please help

Could be you haven't set a manual IP of or possibly your router has so has a conflict? I had the second one  a few times so had to disconnect from my home wifi when doing firmware recoveries. Also something to look out for is to make sure you are using the special factory version of firmware and not the upgrade version as that can cause similar symptoms to what you describe.

Hi All- Hoping someone might have some suggestions for my nano, which is pretty hosed it seems.. During a firmware upgrade, something happened where the file stopped transferring and the nano became 'disconnected' ( my guess is partially installed the file). So now- I can see the device connected via usb, can assign the interface an IP,  and can ping the interface- but all the other ports ( ssh, 1471) are connection refused.

I've tried doing the reset process with no luck, but I'm thinking the firmware file was/is either corrupted or was partially installed.. Any suggestions? Thanks!

|f you can still get to the uboot recovery screen to do a firmware recovery you may be able to get it back. Read carefully, read again, perform each step. Don't unplug during flash, this is your safety net so dont break firmware recovery. https://docs.hak5.org/hc/en-us/articles/360010471774-Firmware-Recovery
