Most wireless devices including laptops, tablets and smartphones have network software that automatically connects to access points they remember. This convenient feature is what gets you online without effort when you turn on your computer at home, the office, coffee shops or airports you frequent.

Simply put, when your computer turns on, the wireless radio sends out probe requests. These requests say “Is such-and-such wireless network around?” The WiFi Pineapple Mark III, powered by Jasager — German for “The Yes Man” — replies to these requests to say “Sure, I’m such-and-such wireless access point – let’s get you online!”

And with the newly improved Pineapple Mark III web interface, gathering interesting packets, spoofing DNS, watching web traffic and more is just a click away.

The new WiFi Pineapple Mark III features a completely redesigned web interface built for ease of use – no need to open a terminal for most operations. With a BBS meets WiFi Router inspired design, the Mark III puts Karma, URL Snarf, DNS Spoof, ngrep, deauth via Aircrack-NG and much more at the click of the link. Internet Connection Sharing has also been greatly simplified with the Mark III acting as DHCP server for connecting clients. Phishing attacks are also built-in with the DNS Spoofing capabilities — all configurable from the PHP-driven web interface.

  • DLSS

    yeah wondering the same thing will a version of the updated firmware become available for previous versions, possibly even partial….

    • Darren Kitchen

      I’m working on a partial update. It isn’t as easy as a firmware flash but I’m confident that the most of the cool new features can be ported, though they’ll have to live along side the existing jasager interface. I’ve released all of the files at wifipineapple.com and just need to test and write a guide.

    • sw0rdf1sh

      first alfa ap51 costs 45$ + shipping out side hackshop

    hi darren

    I was wondering if you could please help me.

    I recently bought a wifi pineapple mark3 and after finally settting it up I went to my web browswer where I then preceeded to pointed it to the pineapple control center using

    I was looking at the karma code when I accidently deleted part of the code now my karma will not start. I have tried everything include updating the version to 1.02 to google to repeatly selecting the button marked factory settings all in an attempt to retreive back the orignal karma source code that came with it. But to my surprise, it returns everything to the orignal settings all accept the karma source code.

    I was wondering if there is a way that I can get back the orignal Karma source code or if you are willing to post your karma source code so that I may use it. I am a noob and I do not yet have the skills to write the karma source code

    ps luv the show learned a lot

    • JJ


      you said that u accidently deleted part of the karma code and now it won’t start


      if u go to factory settings and hit the button the code should reinstate it self

      good luck

  • abbie

    thanks for replying

    yeah when I accidently deleted the karma code I was in a panicking and instead of refresh the factory settings I went to google and I pasted in what I thought was a karma code before hitting update. Now when I hit factory settings it seems to go back to the one I pasted.

    After days of fustrating I discovered the site called digninja and I pasted in a sample karma

    # config file to use with the Karma’d version of hostapd
    # created by Robin Wood – [email protected]http://www.digininja.org


    # Both open and shared auth

    # no SSID cloaking

    # -1 = log all messages

    # 2 = informational messages

    # Dump file for state information (on SIGUSR1)
    # example: kill -USR1

    # 0 = accept unless in deny list

    # only used if you want to do filter by MAC address

    # Finally, enable Karma


    hoping that this would fix the problem I then hit update followed by grep -v -e random /tmp/karma.log to see what the problem might entail and to my suprise
    I found this error log


    Executing: grep -v -e random /tmp/karma.log
    Configuration file: /etc/hostapd/karma.conf
    Line 1: invalid line ‘ config file to use with the Karma’d version of hostapd

    Line 35: invalid line ‘

    KARMA: Enabled
    20 errors found in configuration file ‘/etc/hostapd/karma.conf

    seeing these errors I know understand why my karma is disable. My only chance is to replace the files using the files from the site digninja

    but I don’t know how

    I also read in hak5.wpengine.com/forums about a guy who had problems with Karma but was able to replace his entire files using something called WINSCP but unfortunetaly he did not leave details how he did it.

    sorry for going on a bit but I am still learning how linux works. is there a chance you can point where I am going wrong


    ps any help will do

  • Drakcol

    BTW very nice CBS segment though the main stream media still doesn’t entirely understand what the venerability means entirely. she made it seem like magic happened and that is why she connected to your pineapple. Your few lines made the youtube video.

  • Corrosion

    I’m going to try and install sslstrip on it and add it to the interface.
    if I cant its no big deal, I can run it on the local machine but it’d be pretty sweet to add it to the router itself.

  • Tony


    Been trying to install Pineapple III in vista (I have school programs that don’t run on 7 yet so hence why no upgrade). Will it work or am I just wasting my time.

    Thanks for the help in advance.

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like
    you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you
    could do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but
    instead of that, this is fantastic blog. A great read.
    I’ll certainly be back.

    First, because of weight, a flip-up door is pretty
    much limited to wood. My friend told me that he had in no way gotten enough gold for the next level
    instruction. The price of the product is quite reasonable in comparison to the
    contemporary market price.

    Hi! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing
    a blog article or vice-versa? My website goes
    over a lot of the same subjects as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit
    from each other. If you’re interested feel free to shoot me an email.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Excellent blog by the way!
