Hello ajitrai,

 

 

The Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 3160 and other Intel® Wireless Adapters do not support monitor and promiscuous mode. The adapter and drivers are not designed to achieve this.

 

 

For details about the features supported, please check the following documents:

So Intel don't make any wireless cards that support monitor mode?

If you were, how would you label that in your datasheets/specifications?
