Port Mirroring with the MI424WR Router?

Message 1 of 2

Hello all,

 

I'm trying to track down someone using Bit Torrent on my network.  I've installed a packet sniffer, but the software manual tells me that I need to enable port mirroring in order for it to see all the traffic on the LAN.  Is ther any way to do this with my Verizon supplied router?  If not, is there some other Router Verizon can supply that will work?  Most of the PCs and all of the smartphones are attached through WiFi.

You don;t indicate which router you have, but that doesn;t really matter.

Neither the Actiontec MI424-WR or the Quantum G1100 have port mirroring. 

 

You need qan old fashioned hub, or a managed switch that supports it.
