Hello,

i own a HP IPAQ - hx 2490, and i have tryed the new mobile sniffer 2.2. It is written, that it works with this device, but i can't get it in the promiscuous mode. WHY? Do i have to install a new driver, or this device dosen't work in promiscuous mode?

thx, for answering,

krneki

Thanks, you just need a wireless card that supports that mode. I believe that the one in your device does not. It's not easy to tell, since not all OEMs give out that information. Also, sometimes you have to wait for a ROM update for the OEM to enable it.

Perhaps some users will post here which external cards work in promiscuous mode.

However, from what I've seen, very few people use external wifi cards anymore. It used to be maybe 80% a few years ago, and now it is probably around 5% or less. So there may not be too many users who have tried it.

I don't believe it will work in promiscuous mode with your device.

p.s. not many PDA's support sniffing, but some external CF wifi cards do... for example the CF 1180 from Dell works in promiscuous mode
