I am trying to use a secondary wifi adapter that should be permanently in monitoring mode my current solution to get it working for testing is explained here. (just realized that is over a year old)
In short, the limitations of that are it doesn’t persist between restarts and requires physical access to the device.
I am trying to use the network manager to persist settings and hopefully make things stable even between os updates.
My source for this is mostly this page: Networking on Balena
I put a file called monitor into /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections
The file contents:
[wifi] band=bg mode=monitor
Unfortunately, that has no effect.
Can anyone point me in the right direction?
