I would like to create a simple wifi network sniffer using raspberry pi. I am going to use the Wireshark Python API (now pyreshark) to make a live capture and packet analysis.

The question I have is if the Adafruit Wifi Dongle would be a good choice for this project?


The adapter does not list Monitor or Promiscuous as supported modes. In order for Wireshark to listen, the adapter should be configured in either of the above two modes.
