I have barely used Wireshark. I do not quite know how to use it. However, I do know why I need to use it.

The network that I am currently using, provided by my university, has been horrid lately. Using, I have reports showing major packet loss up and down, along with huge latency. I'm talking 50,000ms huge. It is very intermittent, and I have a feeling that the WAP outside of my dorm is the culprit.

Long story short, is there any way I can filter out lost packets/packets over a certain latency? Better yet, can I monitor the traffic directly through that WAP if I have access to to the MAC address? Any help would be greatly appreciated. If need be, I can put some of those packet loss test results into a pastebin.

Additionally, when I check the "Capture File Properties", under "Dropped packets", it just says "unknown". It also says that I do not have a filter applied, even though I do.
