Cant make pineapple nano work

Hello all,

I have wifi pineapple nano but cant make it work. I have already seen multiple posts regarding unbricking, rebooting, factory resets but none seem to work.
Also, I do not have a Y USB cable so i connect it directly to PC, laptop or power outlet (tried all of combinations).
My issue is that i cannot connect even when i do factory reset. The steps i am doing are:

  1. Hold reset button
  2. Plug pineapple nano into PC/laptop and hold reset button for like 10 seconds
  3. Add IP from range 192.168.1.0/24 and set interface up (route is added automatically)
  4. Visit http://192.168.1.1 --> this does not work, im receiving timeout.
    Throughout this whole process LED stays blue and does not blink at all.
    I suspect that issue is with the device since link is down:
sudo ip addr add 192.168.1.111/24 dev eth1
sudo ip link set eth1 up 
ip link show dev eth1
11: eth1: <NO-CARRIER,BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state DOWN mode DEFAULT group default qlen 1000
    link/ether 00:c0:ca:8d:dc:1b brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff

 

Dmesg:

sudo lsusb  | grep ASIX
Bus 001 Device 007: ID 0b95:772a ASIX Electronics Corp. AX88772A Fast Ethernet

 

My setup is Kali running in VirtualBox (USB device is passed to VM), Host OS is Windows 10.
Also, tried switching different version of USB support in VirtualBox settings.

It seems like i cannot access the device at all. Anyone had similar issue and was able to solve it? Any other ideas to try?

Regards.

Yes, I have vbox extension pack installed. Moreover, you can see that device is recognized. Also, I tried plugging the device directly into the Linux PC but same results.

Have you tried passing it through the virtual machine?

https://www.virtualbox.org/manual/UserManual.html#usb-support

And there should be usb thing on the bottom right of the Virtualbox Window.

Yes, it is passed to the VM. As i wrote in the first post, i tried using all versions of usb support. You can see on command outputs that device is recognized which would not be the case without passing USB in VM settings. Also, connecting directly to the PC gives same results.

Sorry I came back to this thread late.

But can you access http://172.16.42.1:1471 with the pineapple connected.

No, i cannot access http://172.16.42.1:1471 because Pineapple's interface does not go up, it just stays down. Thats why i tried to reset it or reboot it but nothing seemed to work.
