Default Android network monitor / sniffer / capture

I was wondering how to monitor network traffic (like wireshark) and output the data into a csv file on the SD card. Has anyone seen anything like this? I don't want to start developing something thats already around.

I found this video showing it being done on a beagle board: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZFH55WbhCXs

I also came across this guy who posed a similar question of google groups: http://groups.google.com/group/andro...0159e24510fb4f

Sorry to bump an old thread, is there any packet capture app which grabs data network packets? Not wi-fi or bluetooth packets, but 2g/3g packets.

Thanks!!
