Android PCAP Capture is a utility for capturing raw 802.11 frames (“Monitor mode”, or sometimes referred to as “Promiscuous mode”).

Android PCAP Capture uses an external USB RTL8187 Wi-Fi card and does not require a custom ROM or root privileges.

You will need a device running Android 4 or newer (for USB host support), a working USB host mode implementation (some manufacturers do not have a working implementation), a USB OTG cable or USB host port, and a RTL8187 based wireless NIC, such as the Alfa One.

Currently other wireless chipsets are not supported, though hopefully in the future they will be. Capture from the internal wireless device is not possible at this time.

Android PCAP Capture is GPL, source is available on the website at http://www.kismetwireless.net/android-pcap/

    As far as I can see the Note 3 should support USB host. Using an Alfa AWUS036NH with OTG cable, Alfa powers up. Device goes into usb host mode but software reports no USB NIC. Any feedback appreciated.

    If you are having the 0 byte problem trying turn on USB debugging in the developer section. 5 stars, great work.
