Hi all

I dug around online because I wanted to find a wireless network sniffer, and I was disappointed to find that none of the Windows sniffers support the Broadcom chipset (Linksys WPC54GSv1). I saw some that run under Linux, though. So I have a few questions:

1) Is there a good sniffer for Windows that supports my card?
2) If not, is there an easy way of running the Linux sniffers under Win2k, hopefully some sort of emulator...?
3) How do you write a program to interface to a CardBus card? How do you access the interrupts, registers, etc? Hopefully I don't need to use the driver development kit because I don't have an MSDN subscription...

I really would like an answer to #3 because I'm working on becoming a little less of a script-kiddy...:eek:

Thanks,

Are you trying to run a network detector (eg., Netstumbler/Kismet), or a packet monitor like Ethereal?

Oops...I think I mixed two things together. What I'd actually like to do ultimately is to write a server program for the Nintendo DS that would be connected to wirelessly. There is a program out to do this, but it doesn't support my chipset. I'd like to take a whack at the NinDS wireless specs, and to do this I'd need to sniff the wireless channel while two of them are connected. So..

a: is there a sniffer to monitor wireless activity (not necessarily TCP/IP since the DS doesn't have it fully implemented)?
b: how do I write a program to directly talk to my wireless card? I don't mean through all of Windows' layers, I want to talk to the DS directly.

I realize this is all too targeted so probably nobody has a clue. Just seeing if you do.

Thanks for your quick response
