If you don't have a remote sensor, you can still do packet captures on one or more channels using external USB Wi-Fi adapters. However, because we can't use external adapters natively as we do with the Mac's built-in Wi-Fi adapter, we need EASE (External Adapter Support Environment).
This blog post will show you how to configure a Raspberry Pi 4 with an external Wi-Fi adapter to be used as a remote sensor in WiFi Explorer Pro and Airtool. We will assume you have a fresh installed Raspberry Pi 4 using Raspberry Pi OS.
For years, packet capturing in the Mac using the built-in Wi-Fi adapter has always worked reliably out of the box, and it is one of the main reasons many Wi-Fi professionals love their Macs to do their jobs. Unfortunately, packet capturing is now broken in the new M1 Mac.

One of the things I didn't spend too much time with at the beginning of the development of WiFi Explorer was filtering. As the tool matured, it was more [...]
For many years I've been asked to provide support for external USB Wi-Fi adapters in WiFi Explorer. Many of these adapters are either not compatible with macOS or require [...]
Have you ever wondered why certain channels in the 5 GHz band, more specifically in the 5.25-5.35 GHz (UNII-2) and 5.47-5.725 GHz (UNII-2e) frequency bands are (almost) never in [...]
