Introduction to WiFi

In order to get the most out of the WiFi Pineapple, it’s best to have a basic understanding of some WiFi principals. This will lay the foundation to mastering the PineAP Suite – the WiFi sniffing and injection engine at the core of the WiFi Pineapple. Armed with this knowledge you’ll be equipped to execute a responsible and successful wireless audit by following our recommended wireless auditing workflow.

The purpose of this section is not to be all encompassing on the low level operation of the IEEE 802.11 specification lovingly known as WiFi, but rather a crash course in the absolute basics necessary for understanding the operation of PineAP and other WiFi Pineapple components.
