CC2531 Coordinator Firmware + Sniffer


I understand there is the router, coordinator and sniffer firmware. I would like to have the CC2531 running as coordinator (with maybe default settings or with minimal options to set channel, PAN, key) AND having the capability to capture the data received by the coordinator by running e.g. whsniff. Is there an option? I tried this with the coordinator firmware, however it does not work (whsniff reports an error). If I am running the sniffer firmware sniffing works well, however the CC2531 does obviously not work as coordinator.

Thanks for your help.
