I have the Cisco RV042G router/gateway that has SNMP built into it. Is there a way I can use wireshark with the built in SNMP(rv042g) to monitor my entire network ? If so, how ?

Thanks !

Wireshark is a packet analyser and can dissect snmp traffic but doesn't really provide any useful tools for network monitoring. You would still need an application to generate the snmp traffic by querying your router and as that is likely to be a network monitoring application, that is probably the best option for you.

Have a look at applications such as Nagios and Zenoss.
