Wifi Pineapple Nano Kali 2020.1 issues


Recommended Posts

Hello, I have been messing around with the Wifi Pineapple Nano for about a year. I ran into some issues along the way 😑. First was a game of cat and mouse with customer service until I finally got ahold of who I believe was Daren. I explained my problem which was, If tried to connect the wifi pinapple to the internet it would work for about a minute or so, sometimes an hour but that was only twice out of a 6 month span of owning the Nano. Then connection would stop, Kali would give me a message saying blah, blah, blah, device was disconnected. I explained that I have wp6.sh all settings are correct. I have even downloaded every single module and, dependencies for all software that needed them. Bullitens would work as they should, then boom out of nowhere no connection. I was told that wp6.sh was just a program to connect it and then Hak5 sent a bunch of line of code on how it worked. That wasn't helpful as I knew how wp6.sh worked already from research before buying the Nano. I was then told to try it on windows, I was really upset with Hak5 and, the Nano at this time because I do not use Windows in my studies or my lab !!! Windows is Doo Doo lmao. So with little to no help from Hak5 customer service I did more and, more research I mean hours of it. Tried everything in the book I couldn't understand what I was doing wrong at all, I even made sure no devices would kick the pineapple off as well so  grabbed the Nano it's own router. Still nothing! I was having some weird issues with Kali 2020.1 got extremely fed up with it and got rid of that distro all together. I'm now using parrot OS, boy I tell you what a stress relief download wp6.sh and, boom worked right away!!!!! It stays connected with no issues and I can shut down the Nano and connect without the worry of it not working the next day or even 10 minutes from now. I know of so many people who have been going through this connection issue and have gave up on the pinapple. Just grab Parrot OS its another Debian anyway in my opinion it has way better tools preloaded like car hacking tools, and even an electrum BTC wallet which blew my mind lol. My biggest issue was if I brought this to a job and it acted up how it was with Kali I would look really stupid. I would only use a wifi extender with monitor mode and packet injection to be safe. But now I have the Wifi Pineapple working this tool is really awesome great gadget to add to my bag 😁. I hope this helps someone with the same frustration and, I hope I can save you hours of cat and mouse along with hours of research. Hope you all have a great day !

Glad to hear you got it sorted. I knew it wasn't the pineapple that was causing the issue. 

I was annoyed by recent changes in Kali, which lead the ICS updates in the documentation specific to the most recent versions. I posted a video explaining the process doe Kali 2020.

It's really annoying to have Network Manager override iptables configurations set by root in the terminal.

I wish more operating systems would stop trying to be so "helpful" and get out of the users way. Good to know Parrot is one such OS.
