How to exclude my traffic ?


First of all sorry if this is a dumb question i am somehow unexperienced...

i want to search with my network card but filter out my own traffic ... i guess the best would be to use not ip.src == or not maybe it´s possible to do this by MAC of the computer i am using ? any more graceful ideas ?(because i have more than 1 MAC i guess) and any ideas how i can prove this ? how can i see that it´s actually foreign traffic in my network ?

okay i tried to exclude my ip address via 'not ip.addr == myip' but still get my data because i dont think that my neighbor visited the same sites like me ...

okay now i guess i did all i could even imagine to do to exclude my traffic and still see my traffic ...

not ip.addr == and not ip.src == xxx.x.xx.xx and not mac ==xx-xx-xx-xx-xx-xx and not mac ==xx-xx-xx-xx-xx-xx and not ip ==xxx.x.x.x and not ip.dst == and not ip.src ==

i just copy paste this filter ... and i still see my own traffic ...

This is usually done by either removing all protocol bindings from the network card (especially IP addresses), or you could filter out your own MAC address. Something like "not ether host your-MAC-address".

Substitute the "and not" on everything to "or not"
