Wired Internet Connection

The WiFi Pineapple TETRA provides two Ethernet ports. A WAN port via a traditional RJ45 port, as well as a LAN port accessible by its USB ETH port. The USB ETH port connects the host device to the LAN via an onboard Realtek USB Ethernet controller.

The WAN port is connected to eth0 on the WiFi Pineapple TETRA and by default will attempt to obtain an IP address from DHCP.

The LAN port is connected to eth1 on the WiFi Pineapple TETRA and hosts the internal DHCP server which will offer an IP address in the 172.16.42.x range by default.

Note: If Windows does not automatically install the Microsoft WHQL USB Ethernet driver from Windows Update, you may download it from Realtek.

The WiFi Pineapple NANO may be enhanced with wired Ethernet functionality by using a supported USB Ethernet adapter. This accessory, when plugged into the USB Host port on the WiFi Pineapple NANO, will enumerate as eth1. Standard network and firewall configuration may apply. See the appropriate /etc/config files for details.
