ESP32 WLAN promiscuous Mode for WIFI Sniffing

Post by Flynn » Mon Aug 19, 2019 4:11 pm

Hello people,

I am new to MicroPython also to programming close to hardware. Now I am having a group Project where I want to programm a Wipy2.0 with the Expansion Board 2.0 to sniff Wifi Probe Requests. I want to create a PAX Counter on it.

Now I have the Question:
- How do I Setup the WLAN to promiscuous mode.
- Can I do this in Micropython or do I have to use a workaround with C or C++?
- How do I generallly scan for probe request or how do i handle them?
- I found a Project that generally does what I want but I have no Idea were to start. https://github.com/cyberman54/ESP32-Paxcounter

Can someone Help me Please. =)

Thank you in advance

WiPy2 and Expansion Board 2 are products of Pycom. Better ask at their forum forum.pycom.io
