Alfa AWUS036NH 2.4 on the MK7

Anybody here as ever connected a Alfa AWUS036NH USB adapter to the USB port of the MK7 ?  If so did you do something special to install it ?

That's what I would like to do because I'm seeing more SSID with that card then with the recon card on the MK7.  I would like to use my alpha card on the MK7 for recon.

By the way great tool, keep the good work.

Thank you.

Thank you fro your fast reply pyrro,

I'm trying to find some information on which package I should install would you be able to point me to some documentation or would you know which package I should install for my Ralink RT2870/RT3070.  Maybe the kmod-usb-net package...

Thanks for your help

Connect the WiFi adapter to the Pineapple

opkg update
opkg install kmod-rt2800-lib kmod-rt2800-usb kmod-rt2x00-lib kmod-rt2x00-usb
the "x files" (kmod-rt2x00-lib and kmod-rt2x00-usb) are most likely already installed


cat /proc/net/dev

in the output of the command above, identify the new wireless interface (most likely wlan3 or wlan4)

ifconfig wlanX up
where X is the number of the identified wlan interface, for example
ifconfig wlan4 up

should show wlan4 (or whatever the interface is enumerated as)

Go to the Pineapple web UI > Settings > Network > select wlanX as recon interface

Verify by running a recon scan
