How do you know it never reboots?

There's just one firmware image that is supposed to be used when doing a recovery. Do not try to flash any other firmware than the recovery firmware image when in recovery mode.

There is still is a solid red led with a round busy icon

I guess you have to be more detailed in the description of your scenario to understand what you are trying to do and what happens (and in what stage of the recovery process). As of right now, it's not enough information to be able to try to help and troubleshoot.

The device updated successfully. Your device will now reboot. <--- no reboot as far as i know

Do not disconnect or power off the device.

howdo i test the /24 range

Nothing that you test really. It depends on what OS you are using. Look for the network interface that is enumerated when the Pineapple is connected to the computer. The IP address should be listed when viewing information about that interface.

OK, if you connect the Pineapple to the Windows 11 computer and the LED is blue, open a PowerShell window and run ipconfig /all is there any Ethernet adapter listed that has the Description ASIX AX88772C USB2.0 to Fast Ethernet Adapter?

If you also open the Windows run menu (GUI + r) and type ncpa.cpl (and press enter) does any ASIX adapter show in the window that is opened (named the same way as the bold ASIX description above)?

Make sure to try with different USB cables as well. With a Windows 11 computer and a working USB cable and a Pineapple with a solid blue LED, you should be able to access it.

That should work. If you did set up a static address (172.16.42.42) when doing the firmware recovery, you could try to delete the static entry and let the Windows machine try to get the IP address using DHCP. Shouldn't make any real difference, but you could at least try. I would probably try it with other computers as well just to rule out any issues with a specific PC/OS. But... I use my Pineapple with Windows 11 as well from time to time and it works as expected.
