corabrickdog Posted April 2, 2019 Share Posted April 2, 2019 (edited) Hey all, I ordered my Lan Turtle 3G on December 1st. It arrived fine and everything worked well out of the box. I plugged it into my Mac Book Pro and into my ethernet switch. Modules worked great, I was able to access everything online through my Mac with the turtle providing ethernet to it. But this turtle was running the Turtle Shell Version 3, so I updated it using the normal "check for updates" option in the "configuration" tab through the turtle's SSH. The update went fine but when the turtle came back online it could not provide my Mac with any internet. I was still able to SSH into the turtle with the self assigned IP address of 172.16.84.1 and the turtle said it was now running Turtle Version 5. When I ran 'ifconfig' it showed the self assigned IP address of 172.16.84.1 in eth0 and a DHCP address in eth1 which was assigned from my router (10.10.x.x). I could not check for updates, download modules, or ping google.com from the turtle (via SSH) or from my Mac when the turtle was plugged into it with ethernet. I contacted Hak5 support and after a day or so they offered to send me a new Lan Turtle 3G. I received that one and had the same issue when the turtle updated to Turtle Version 5. I told the same support tech that the issue persisted on the new turtle, she verified with me that I had both plugged the turtle into an ethernet cord and into my Mac but after a few back and fourths she never replied to my email. My last response with Hak5 via email was on March 7th. I'm able to run everything and use the turtle fine when it is on Turtle Version 3 but as soon as I upgrade to Turtle Version 5 the turtle is unable to do anything that required a DHCP address or internet even though I can see it has been assigned one when I SSH into the turtle and run 'ifconfig'. If anyone is able to help me figure this issue out and get my Lan Turtle 3G to work properly on Turtle Version 5 it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! This issue has been solved. See my last post for solution if anyone else is having this issue. Edited April 4, 2019 by corabrickdog Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
