Model: TL-WN725N
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version:

Hi,

 

I need to buy USB wifi adapter with option to enable promiscuous mode to "pass all traffic it receives to the central processing unit rather than passing only the frames that the controller is specifically programmed to receive" (Wikipedia). Does this product have this mode? If not, which USB wifi adapters do? :-)

 

Thanks for any help,

have a nice day/night.

Hi,

 

There is a beta driver for TL-WN725N  V3 which supports monitor mode.

https://www.tp-link.com/en/support/download/tl-wn725n/#Driver 

 

May it help. Good day.

Hi! Thank you for your reply. I don't see on website you wrote beta drivers for Windows. I bough TL-WN725N  V3, I installed driver from this website, but it not allow me to set monitor mode (I cheched it for few ways, for example by WLanHelper).

Hi,

 

The adapter TL-WN725N,V3 supports linux Kernel Version    2.6.18 ~ 4.4.3. If your kernal version is not included, you may not be able to use it. And since linux has many branches, we cannot provide some help for it. We would like to provide the chipset of this adapter so that you can get some help from some professional website like github.com. Chipse is Realtek RTL8188EUS.

 

Good day!

Thank you. How about Windows? Can you help me to find some USB Wi-Fi adapter for Windows, enabled in shops, having possible to use promiscuous mode ?

Hi,

 

Sorry to tell you that there is no adapter with official driver that can support promiscuous mode on Windows PC.

 

Good day.
