  • Hello and welcome -- I have not tested but you can patch the built-in Wifi adapter of raspberry pi by nexmon. -- "Nexmon is our C-based firmware patching framework for Broadcom/Cypress WiFi chips that enables you to write your own firmware patches, for example, to enable monitor mode with radiotap headers and frame injection." -- A better installation.

You can patch the built-in Wifi adapter of raspberry pi by Nexmon:

Nexmon is our C-based firmware patching framework for Broadcom/Cypress WiFi chips that enable you to write your own firmware patches, for example, to enable monitor mode with radiotap headers and frame injection.


If you want to buy a wireless adapter that supported "monitor mode" and "packet injection", there is plenty of choices.

At first, check this link out to check the list of USB wireless adapter that supported by raspberry pi.

You can choose something like ALFA AWUS036NEH. Just search your favored one.
