Does anyone know how to make sense of the traffic sent between a computer and Mikrotik router (using winBox?) Like how to "decode" the packets being transmitted between the two? None of it is encrypted as far as I can tell but it still looks like gibberish to me.

I have been seeing very strange activity between my computer and Mikrotik, even when neither is connected to the internet. I'm seeing about traffic at 500 packets / second or 300 KB / second which is definitely more than normal.
