FYI. I have Android PCAP working on the new Sero 7 with an OTG cable using the Alfa 036. So you can add that to your list of supported devices. Interestingly, I was able to get it to work without an external power source. When I used a different brand with the same chipset (Sinmax) that worked too but it required an external power source to function properly.

So here is a question: within Android, how do I force the stock ROM to disable the internal wifi and use the external wifi for regular internet browsing. Obviously, if one can use the external wifi to monitor one should be able to use it to transmit and send too. I glanced over the Android wifi APIs but I couldn't see a command that would accomplish that feat.
