The OpenMote has a 802.15.4 transceiver, not wifi. Hence, you should configure
the sniffer to use the same channel as the other OpenMote and the Pi. In order
to configure the channel on the OpenMote on RIOT, you have to use the ifconfig
command in the shell.

Can you briefly describe what exactly you want to achieve? What is your use
case and what is your setup? If you have a Pi involved, why don't you simply
use it as the sniffer, too?
