PineAp never logs broadcasting SSIDs of non connected clients

Device: NANO
Type: Bug
Status: Closed

Running Version 1.05 - However been in device since receiving device.

Scenario is as follows
8 devices (3 Android mobiles, 1 laptop)
Mobile1 = Android phone is tethered to the Nano (client mode) Android1 has a sim in it.
Android Mobiles 2 and 3 and the laptop all have open networks saved all devices are not connected to any networks (Wifi is on) Phones do not have Sims in.

Nothing connects to the Nano, (it should be detecting the broadcasts from the 2 phones and the laptop)

I've also tired a wardrive style scenario and again nothing logged.

(only time I ever got SSIDs logged was when I connected to the Nano's SSID with my client phone.)

I know it mentioned 8 devices then I only talk about 4 , this is because the others are IOS = 2 Ipads and 2 Iphones, and I figures it would confuse matters if I went though too many device configs.

Main issue is that they are all looking for an AP however PineAP and the Nano just never logs them.
As it doesn't log them , it doesn't broadcast them and hence PineAP doesn't work.

This can now be closed, it was a faulty device that was replaced by the nice people at Hak5 :-)

Actually it shouldn't be closed, I was testing on my new Tetra earlier today and reproduced exactly the same issue, now I know it's software based.

The bug is with filters when using mobile app, if I add filter Mac addresses/SSID and then remove they must still be there or something is (maybe a BOM?)
what ever it is appears to be invisible,

So my Tetra was acting the same as my older Nano which I returned, So my work around is to have fake Mac addresses in my filter boxes which I set to deny.

This restricts the functionality a tiny bit however the Tetra device is now usable and logging just fine.

Darren/Seb you should have received the one I sent back (would have been a Nano in a brown bag) please have a look to see if the filters are set but invisible (by the way doing a full factory reset doesn't fix the issue , only using fake mac addresses did for me)
Hopefully the above work around might work for others having the same issue.

PS , I added both client and SSID filters and then removed , which made my device stop logging anything in PineAP even though the filters looked empty.

Having a clear filter button might be a quick workaround (also nicer than removing each one by one)
