Hello I'm taking a networking class and have been searching all weekend for my answer and I can't figure out how to do it.

I was told to do a 1 minute capture. I did that. I had like 604 packets captured. How do I find out which source address was used the most? How do I find that break down?

Also is asks: b. What sort of traffic is using the most network resources? How do I sort that out too?

Thanks, I know its probably something simple, but I just couldn't find it on the web.

take a look at the statistics menu, especially the Endpoint statistics and the protocol hierarchy. With the help of those two you should be able to answer your questions.
