With regard to a wireless sniffer, I'd have to concur with HC (Keydet),
you'd have to go a long way to beat ethereal, not only does it run on *nix
and w32 but it has more protocol savvy than many of it's commercial
counterparts. By that I mean there are literally thousands of individuals
across the Internet submitting decoders for the huge variety of different
protocols they encounter.
One example of this is a commercial tool spotted 2 RIP packets with the same
source and destination. Ethereal identified that the first was RIPv1 and
the 2nd was RIPv2. This provided one extra piece of evidence that what I
was seeing was in fact a scan. This example wasn't wireless.
