Capturing Packets using Wireshark

To start the capture of packets, select the interface from the left panel and click on Start.

Once you click on start, you'll notice that the capture of packets has begun and all the packets to and from your computer starts appearing.

If you just want to see a paticular type of packets, say ARP, HTTP etc., you can also add a filter. In the top left corner, type the desired type of packet. Only that type of packet will appear.
