Difficulty Establishing Internet Connection for Pineapple Mark VII

Recommended Posts

Hi All ...

I have a question about the Wifi Pineapple Mark VII. I'm trying to establish and maintain a connection between my MacBook Air 2 and my Pineapple Mark VII.

After I log into the UI, I go to the Internet Connection link, then click on the Network Settings button on the pop-up window labelled "Connect to the Internet?"

I can configure Wireless Client Mode using the wlan2 interface. I select my Access Point, provide credentials, receive an IP address and everything looks good. But I can't do anything beyond that. Scanning doesn't pick up any SSIDs. Campaigns don't pick up any detail or generate a report. And when I go back to the Internet Connection link, the pop-up window shows "If looks like your Wifi Pineapple isn't connected to the Internet."

From there, I go back to Network Settings, and see that I'm connected to my Access Point via the wlan2 interface.

I can't check for updates. I can't access modules. And the Dashboard is empty.

This issue has been posted on the HAK5 forum again and again. In one message, a frequent contributor asked the user to execute the "lsusb" command in the shell. In his case, he was missing the two antenna values. In my case, it looks like everything that should be there is there.

This is the output:

Bus 001 Device 004: ID 148f:7601 MediaTek 802.11 n WLAN

Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux 5.4.154 ohci_hcd Generic Platform OHCI controller

Bus 001 Device 003: ID 148f:7601 MediaTek 802.11 n WLAN

Bus 001 Device 002: ID 1a40:0101 USB 2.0 Hub

Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux 5.4.154 ehci_hcd EHCI Host Controller

What am I doing wrong here? I have a solid connection to a AP that's ten feet from me. The Wifi Pineapple shows I'm connected. But I can't touch the Outside World.

You got some suggestions on Discord, but it didn't seem to change anything (or it was already tried). When you have gotten an IP address on the Pineapple's wlan2 interface, can you ssh into it (or run the web UI based terminal) and ping, for example, www.google.com ? If not, can you ping a public IP address, like ?
