Bricked my Pineapple Nano

Recommended Posts

Hey lovely people,

 So i've just received my Nano earlier today and was playing around with it for a little bit. I had issues with devices connecting to the open AP, so i decided to factory reset it after buying a SD card because it does apparently fix the issue for some reason. However, after i went through with pressing the factory reset button from the webpage, i gave it about 3 minutes and there was suddenly a power cut. So right now im terrified that it might be bricked.

The blue light is still blinking, but it's been like for that about 15 minutes and i can't neither access the web interface or do anything.

Can someone please help me out or point out something im not aware of as i've been anticitpating its arrival for so bloody long 😞

Thank you so much mate. So basically i've typed down sudo ifconfig eth1 192.168.1.2 netmask 255.255.255.0 up, which enabled my to access 192.168.1.1 and update the firmware.

So as of this moment, the update has been going on for about 15 mins.

Should i now reset the Pineapple facing USB Ethernet interface back to DHCP or 172.16.42.42 with netmask 255.255.255.0 by pretty much typing the same command but with putting the 172 address? I can't tell if it did reboot or not still tho because it has blinked a couple of times about 2-3 minutes ago, that's what im tryna make sure of right now

Just to verify you did use the factory recovery firmware?

Yes, then try accessing the web UI for initial setup.

You're a life saver man, everything is sorted. Just one more question tho

So i did the whole setup through linux this time and used Darren ws6.sh script for the internet sharing. However, I can't seem to be able to connect to the internet through the UI to download modules and what not. So my question is do you reckon i can still acess the UI from my mac since it seemed to work over there or will i be stuck with Linux as the intital setup took place there?

Also even though i formatted the sd card, it wasn't giving me an option to install the modules on it rather the internal memory. was i missing something?

You can access the web UI from any device that you have properly connected to the nano.  Its not tied to the setup system.  Sounds like you need to check your internet sharing settings or you could connect wifi as a client is another method.
