I am stuck at creating wireshark filter to remove all these from showing up.

The current filter that I have is below, and i no idea how to further enhance it.

http.request.method == "POST" || http.request.method == "PUT" || http.request.method == "GET"

How to filter out these?

  a. TCP Retransmission  
  b. TCP Spurious Retransmission  
  c. TCP Out-of-Order  
  d. with content ending IGD.xml  
  e. GET / HTTP/1.0 without query string url.  

Photo attached.

Please try this:

http.request and not (tcp.analysis.flags or http contains "GET / HTTP/1" or http contains "IGD.xml HTTP/1")

http.request (without method) because you listed the most common requests anyway.
