My initial setup of the WiFi Pineapple Mark Vll failed. I got the following error:

UCI failed to set country for radio1 exit status 1

Looking at pineapple-diagnostics it showed phy1 and phy2 missing as shown below:

I believe I am experiencing the same issue as https://forums.hak5.org/topic/36498-missing-wireless-radio/.

I ssh'd into my pineapple and ran ifconfig -a, iwconfig, and lsusb and did not see a radio0 or radio1 (referred to as wlan0 and wlan1 respectively). Here's the output from those commands:

ifconfig -a:

I also tried the command below and it only returned Wiphy phy0

iw list | grep phy0 && iw list | grep phy1 && iw list | grep phy2

 

I'm at a loss right now. My guess is that this is in fact a hardware issue like the person in https://forums.hak5.org/topic/36498-missing-wireless-radio/ was having. Anyways, any help would be appreciated as I'm not sure how to proceed. Thanks!

I'm using the USB-C cable that came with the WiFi Pineapple box. I got it at DEFCON30, it came with the pineapple, 3 antennas, and the USB-C cable.

I'm also trying to do this on a Linux Mint 21 OS (not in a vm) in case that info is helpful.

So, I connected the Pineapples USB-C/Ethernet port to my laptop via the USB-C cable that came shipped with it. My laptop has a 2A power supply... I thought this was the proper way to do this as the USB-C cable connection to my laptop is needed to complete the setup on my Pineapple.

In normal situations it should be enough to power the Pineapple using a USB port. It's important though to make sure the Pineapple *really* gets the power that is mentioned in the docs (which is 2A). If you are absolutely sure your laptop USB-C port can deliver 2A, then it's all good. If not, you could try a power adapter that is rated for 2A. The Pineapple can be set up using wireless as well (but if your radios are defective, then that will not work). If you have tried all these things and it still won't work, then I'd suggest you create a support ticket.

Yeah, my USB-C port can deliver 2A. I also verified with my laptops manufacturer again. Regarding the WiFi, the wlan2, wlan0-1, wlan1 interfaces don't even show up which lead me to think it's a defective unit.

Better question is, does Hak5 provide unit replacements for cash purchases at DEFCON? Anyways, thanks for the help dark_pyrro.
