Hi all, I'm new to the forum.... I have a Motorola SBG 6580 modem/router/WiFi at home on cable broadband. I have 1 PC which is connected to the 1 of the 4 ports on the router. I have 1 laptop, which is connected wirelessly to the router.

Is it possible to capture any network traffic; in particular web traffic coming out of the laptop?

have you tried to capture on related interfaces at each laptop? use http filter. and read this

I believe the OP wants to capture the Laptop traffic on the PC, which would be impossible unless the SBG 6580 supports it with Port Mirroring. However, a Google search does not indicate such a feature on the SBG 6580.
