    Using an external USB Wifi Dongle to get monitor mode work?


      Hello guys,

      I am new on Intel Edison and I would like to log mac adresses of wifi devices in my area via airodump-ng.

      The internal wifi chip (/the driver) does not support monitor mode,

      so my idea was to use an external usb wifi dongle.


      My questions are:

      Does Intel Edison support usb wifi dongles? (or have I to install some modules/drivers?)

      And is generally the monitor mode available on Edison (for wifi dongles which support monitor mode)?



      Many thanks in advance!
