Wi-Fi PCAP Capture uses an external USB RTL8187 Wi-Fi card and does not require a custom ROM or root privileges.
You will need a device running Android 4 or newer (for USB host support), a working USB host mode implementation (some manufacturers do not have a working implementation), a USB OTG cable or USB host port, and a RTL8187 based wireless NIC, such as the Alfa One.
Currently other wireless chipsets are not supported, though hopefully in the future they will be. Capture from the internal wireless device is not possible at this time.
Wi-Fi PCAP Capture is GPL, source is available on the website at http://www.kismetwireless.net/android-pcap/
There is no guarantee that your specific device combination will work - READ and UNDERSTAND the full description, check the requirement list!
Be prepared to provide a detailed error report if things fail on your device. Don't just downvote the app and write "Doesn't work" in the comment. That will not improve anything. I can only test the devices that I own.
Now works on Android 5.0 with full network access including Google Play downloads. Officially untested on 5.1, but it looks like it's running well there.
Note that this app is still young; if you get crashes, upload the bug report when asked, so that I can fix things. Or report your problems at the PPP Widget forum (see link to developer website).
Note: this is NOT a regular app, it is a widget only. You will not find it in the app menu.
Make sure you know how to place widgets on your workspace.
- Needs USB host connection (with OTG adapter)
- Needs root access (with "Superuser" or "SuperSU" app)
- Needs a powered USB hub in most cases (modems draw plenty of power)
- Your modem must provide serial ports and use the standard PPP protocol; ask the manufacturer if unsure
This app is free. No ads. No data gathering.
Again, if your device combination does not work, write a report. Just downvoting and complaining is not helpful. This app works closely to the device hardware which may vary from model to model, and I can't test each and every modem or tablet out there, obviously.

This widget enables Internet access over almost any USB device with PPP modem capabilities, including many mobile phones (smartphones generally not included).
It is a complete rewrite of the previous "PPP Widget", with one of the main advantages being that additional kernel drivers are no longer required.
However, some Android devices have a "blacklist" for USB devices (like Sony Xperia Tablet Z) and may refuse to accept a range of possible USB accessories including modems.
Even if this app needs root access for building the connection, it does NOT alter any system files!
By turning on the wifi symbol is switching to blue, a connection is signalled by a small . this App must be added as widget. Auto Wifi control wifi with one touch on wifi and use free wifi
