Trouble with firmware recovery

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I have had a WiFi Pineapple nano for quite sometime.  I have been having some problems here and there with it recently and wanted to do a firmware recovery as I see that is suggested frequently.  I follow the steps from https://docs.hak5.org/hc/en-us/articles/360010471774-Firmware-Recovery  but I am having a heck of a time actually getting into the pineapple at 192.168.1.1.

I hold the reset button down for 10 sec, plug in to computer via a usb port while holding reset for another 10 seconds.  The nano has a solid blue light.  I am usually decent with networking but I cannot for the life of me figure this part out " From the host PC, configure a static IP address on the WiFi Pineapple facing Ethernet interface to 192.168.1.2 with netmask 255.255.255.0 "

My computer is connected through WiFi so I unplug my adapter.  I go to change my network adapter settings and I have 5 options: ethernet, ethernet2 (nord VPN tap), the nano, and two vmware network adapters.  I have tried setting the ethernet to 192.168.1.2 with the correct netmask but I keep getting "connection timed out" or "unable to connect".  When use ipconfig (using windows 10), it says my nano has an autoconfig ipv4 address of 169.254.105.143, but in the adapter settings it has 192.168.1.1.  Ipconfig also shows every adapter I previously listed as disconnected, minus the vmware ones.  I have changed each adapter one by one to 192.168.1.2 but no luck. 

Can someone make a video for an easier walk-through or provide some other suggestions?  I feel like I should really be able to do something like this from the docs.

 

Thanks all, I appreciate it.

Sorry for the 3rd post.  My second one was incorrect.  A device on my network was taking the 192.168.1.1.  I am still unable to correctly set or connect to the nano.

You need to set the nano ip to 192.168.1.2 255.255.255.0..........then open a browser and type 192.168.1.1
