I have an android smart box with a built-in wifi and I want to add a dongle to the box so that I can monitor the network. I have found a similar question with somewhat vague answer(at least to me); Android as WiFi bridge with AP
I have 3 wifi dongles at the moment. The device can detect 2 of them(with dmesg run from shell and also a small android application which gets vendorId and productId of the connected usb devices) but I don't know if the required drivers are installed or modules are loaded.
My question is if the devices are detected, can i make use of them in an android app? or do I have to download android source code and compile it with new drivers/modules?
Basically I'm a little bit stuck and any pointers would be appreciated.
