Setting the wifi interface in monitor mode
I am trying to set the embedded wifi interface of the Onion Omega 2+ in monitor mode.
The only reference I found is https://community.onion.io/topic/248/iwconfig-and-tcpdump-for-omega but it's quite old and does not apply to the latest firmware version (b186).
In detail iw phy phy0 interface add mon0 type monitor does not work because the embedded wifi interface is not recognized by iw (e.g. when running iw list).
Does anybody have a suggestion?
Thanks for helping
Sorry for this necro post, but since 3 days I tried to specialized my Omega2+ for wifi scanning/attack (research).
As you can see in this post (https://community.onion.io/topic/2247/demo-wifi-ap-sniffer/6?_=1589203829729) , @tommaso-tani has tried unsuccessfully to enabled the monitor mode.
Furthermore, as you can see on mediatek (https://docs.labs.mediatek.com/resource/linkit-smart-7688/en/limitations-and-known-issues), the official driver does not support monitor mode.
I'm afraid to have to say that Omega2+ is not a good candidate device for wifi security research
