Hello recently my game server is getting dos attacks everyday, so would it be possible to track real IP address of attacker with wireshark? Or it is not possible? Discovered wireshark few days ago :-))

I was just dosed again. Router has many logs with ip addr about dos but in wireshark couldnt find any of them... how is that possible? Here is small log: wireshark file also this dos was kinda weak cause i was able to login to servers and start wireshark. would be awsome if someone could atleast tell me the port they are attacking
