How to filter out traffic that I do with my mobile phone while being on computer? I can filter out other computers but I can't do that for phones that are connecting to Internet wirelessly through my router. IPs and MAC are like these: 64:A7:69:47:5C:50 00:24:1D:91:8D:73 E4:B0:21:B5:1E:58 - phone 00:18:8B:71:16:7E

Thanks in advance

what do you mean by "filter out"?

  1. Do you want to see the traffic and it's not in the capture file
  2. You don't want to see the traffic that's already in the capture file

Suggestion for 1:

You will only see that traffic if you captured data at the right place. If your router is also the wirelass AP, you need to capture within the router or on its LAN/WAN interface. If the wireless devices are connected through another AP (access point), you need to capture there.

See this:

Suggestion for 2:

Use either a capture filter or a display filter

Capture filter (during capture): not (host or host
Display filter (after capturing): not (ip.addr == or ip.addr ==
