I’ve just had a letter from Virgin Media telling me that a device on my network is broadcasting multicast dns. Can Wirehsark help me track down this device?

Do you know how to capture traffic on your uplink?

I’ve never used WireShark before so no. But if it’s possible to do what I need then I would like to start using it.

Okay, do you know anything about networking? Do you know what to look for when searching for 'broadcast multicast dns'?
