I need to turn a Nexus 7 with Android in it into a wireless packet sniffer. I need to keep track not only of my own traffic but also of the traffic my WiFi interface can capture (hence the need to set it in monitor mode)
I'm not even certain that even doable with the embedded wireless card in the Nexus 7 allows monitor mode? If it does, would it be possible setting it using regular commands (such as
ifconfig) I'm old, and that's what I'm used to :-D (opening a terminal and typing things)
The about tablet says:
Kenel version: 3.4.0-cyanogenmod-gb7efce1 build03@cyanogenmod #1 Mon Feb 3 15:26:37 PST 2014 CPU: ARMv7 Processor rev 0 (v7) CyaongenMod version: 10.2.1.-flo
I know it only has a WiFi interface (no 3G/4G) and also that it's a 2013 model Since my Wi-Fi's MAC address starts with
AC:22:0B, I guess I have some kind of
ASUSTek card, but I haven't been able to find the specific model.
Thank you in advance.
PS: If I can't monitor wireless traffic with a Nexus 7, I'm open to buy a new tablet with a network interface that accepts monitoring. I'm open to suggestions about what to get.
