Why am I not seeing unique traffic

I'm not sure if I'm not configuring it right or if it's something with my network but it's not working for me. I see the same 3 or 4 addresses hundreds of times over when I start capturing. There's no unique addresses. Also I can't seem to find my computer's address anywhere in wireshark no matter what I do. I can find my router gateway or whatever but not my computer's address. Any help would be apreciated.

Possible needed information (I'm fairly newbie to this so sorry for uneeded info):

  1. I have a modem/router combo
  2. I used to be able to monitor traffic fine when I had my old router/modem combo
  3. Trying to see both in and out traffic
  4. My NAT mode is set to "RoutedWithNat"
  5. I do not have a static ip
  6. Both my firewall and modem/router firewalls are off
  7. I have DHCP enabled on my router as well as UPNP (no idea what those do)
  8. I see 2 ethernets being used on my client list and one says unknown and the other says my pc's name

Are you running the capture on your PC, or on a different network device? Have you tried applying a display filter for your computer's address (i.e. "ip.addr eq xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx" replacing the "x's" with your IP address)? Using the IPv4 tab in the Conversations view found at Statistics -> Conversations may help you as well.

I'm running the capture on my pc. I'm on ethernet. Filtering my computers address helped. Thanks.
