Hi everyone! I'm new here and just downloaded Wireshark for a Computer Comm class. I need to capture traffic sent to a specific website, explain the sequence of events (DNS exchange, ARP, TCP Connection, Web page request, TCP teardown, etc.) and explain what each part does. I've run a capture, opened a browser and gone to the website, and then stopped the capture but there is SO MUCH to view in the head is spinning! Can someone help me understand or point me to an example or a video which could help? Thank you so much!

I connected to the hotspot on my phone instead of my home wifi and that helped eliminate a lot of the nonsense packets from the other connected devices. I flushed the dns and then re-captured, but I'm still struggling to understand the packets. Any help would be appreciated! :)
