The Problem

 

I hava a Tetra model MK5.8 and running Parrot OS parrot 5.2.0-2parrot1-amd6 and is not connecting for intial set up.

 

Attempt 1

I followed the steps:

 

Windows / Linux#

  1. Download the latest WiFi Pineapple TETRA firmware
    https://www.wifipineapple.com/downloads
  2. Plug the TETRA into your computer using the included USB Y cable
  3. Browse to http://172.16.42.1:1471
  4. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete setup

For troubleshooting I did:

 

NOTE: For each attempt I did a factory reset by hNOTE: For each attempt I did a factory reset by holding the button 10 seconds.NOTE: For each attempt I did a factory reset by holding the button 10 seconds.olding the button 10 seconds.ifconfig showed no IPv4 so I ran wph6 script to set up network, no joy. (I got the script from https://github.com/hak5darren/wp6/blob/master/wp6.sh).

Attempt 2

Assing a static IP to the eth1 interface  in /etc/network/interfaces and restarted services, no joy.

iface eth1 inet static
address 172.16.42.42
netmask 255.255.255.0
network 172.16.42.0
broadcast 172.16.42.255

Attempt 3

Connected only through RJ cable and power, no joy


NOTE: For each attempt I did a factory reset by holding the button 10 seconds, before continuing with the other one.

It looks like eth1 isn't getting an IP from the tetra.Have you tried on another machine? to rule out yours being the problem.

Your not powering it up while holding the reset button down for 10 seconds are you?

That would put it into firmware recovery (uboot) mode which is different to a factory reset. if you are then the Tetra will take the IP 192.168.1.1 so you must manually set yours to 192.168.1.2 or so. but then you would only use that to flash a factory firmware and not an upgrade firmware file.

Like @Just_a_User mentioned, are you preforming factory recovery by holding button?  This is not needed for setup.

Also I have seen some linux systems (and depending on hardware) only allow one Ethernet connection.  Might try it with no other Ethernet connections to you system other than USB ETH1 from tetra.

@Just_a_User,

Yes I have tried in a windows and in a Kali same problem

I did actually, so what shall I do then?

That would put it into firmware recovery (uboot) mode which is different to a factory reset. if you are then the Tetra will take the IP 192.168.1.1 so you must manually set yours to 192.168.1.2 or so. but then you would only use that to flash a factory firmware and not an upgrade firmware file.

It depends, if you want to attempt a firmware recovery then follow these instructions : -

https://docs.hak5.org/hc/en-us/articles/360010471774-Firmware-Recovery

Making sure you upload a recovery firmware not an upgrade file.

if you are on a network where your router is also using 192.168.1.1 then you will need to disconnect from that while connecting to the tetra @ 192.168.1.1

in that case don't power the tetra up with the reset button held down.

But it might also fix your issue  or give you further insight. Especially if you have not tested if you can reach uboot yet. if you can reach uboot recovery page at least you know the usb ethernet hardware is working.
