Would I still need a crossover cable to use the sniffer?
You will need whatever the proper cable is to make the link. If you get a link light (or traffic showing on the sniffer), the cabling is good.

At this point it would be very unlikely a laptop ethernet port would not be Auto MDI-X, but in any case, if you get a link indication (light or "network connected"), or the sniffer sees traffic, cabling is not the issue.
