    A packet sniffer or capturer is a program that uses a hardware device that is capable to capture network packets in global (not those that are merely directed to it).

    Google next time please, should be on wiki.

    DS uses wifi, so any wifi sniffer will do. You'll have to search for it yourself though, and you'll need a decent wifi adapter that can go promicious (:?) or scan-mode or whatever it's called these days..
