  • Router

    From my computer (Windows 10) using the latest PBCC


    1. What information can I get from my router? Parameters? Data going in and out?

    2. How do I access the information?

    I only have one computer. But we do have WIFI

    Thanks

    Kerry

    WIndows version and compiler are irrelevant to your question unless you mean you want to query the router from a PBCC application. If that is the case, the answer is -virtually nothing unless you are deeply into low level network protocol monitoring methods.

    Depends on your "router" - in many cases, very little if any traffic information is accessible by any method..
    Is it a typical SOHO WAP/switch/DHCP Server/router? or just a router?

    Most SOHO devices have a HTTP (browser) interface that let you view/configure a lot of "parameters". and some include a traffic monitor that will show origin and destination IPs of packets.
    Higher level routers (Cisco etc) provide more complex monitoring and logging tools.

    What sort of information do you want?
    If you want details of the actual data, flowing on your network, Wireshark is a very comprehensive tool. https://www.wireshark.org/
    If you just want to know how much data is going in and out for every application, NetGenius is a good tool for monitoring internet usage..

      Packet Monitor command pktmon
      https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/win...ommands/pktmon

      Just found pktmon so playing with it
      Want to monitor a connection on a single port.
      This is not yet the pktmon start --capture

      @cls
      rem pkmonhelp.bat
      rem pktmon filter add MyTest -i 192.168.0.2 -t TCP -p 12345
      rem pkmon help
      erase me.txt
      pktmon filter add help > me.txt
      me.txt

      pktmon { filter | list | start | stop | status | unload | counters | reset | etl2txt | etl2pcap | hex2pkt | help } [options]

      Stuart,
      Thanks for the links A lot to grasp to filter a single port with WireShark.

      Kerry,
      Not trying to get off subject. Not sure about wifi monitoring.
      Have not reviewed these wifi monitors:

        The device (not specified) may have Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) instead of, or in combo with, HTTP and/or CLI interfaces.

          Thanks guys - you are truly a huge source of knowledge.

          I also acknowledge that my naïve question needs further definition - and you guys can sure do it!

          My router is supplied by Spark which is the used-to-be only Govt owned telecom in the country but is now just the major player with a number of competitors. I will ask them for a spec.

          I will investigate the programs in those links - they look promising

              Essential Net Tools is free.
              If you are looking for inbound and outbound connections (not the actual data) try this: https://www.tamos.com/download/main/

                Mike Doty Just use Wireshark, it's THE standard across 99% of anyone wanting to monitor packets. Alternately Fiddler if you want to snoop HTTPS traffic in specific circumstances.

                  Looks like an HTTP interface to setup, with no statistic data available. (I did not go into every corner of page.)
