I'm somewhat new to Wireshark so I may be doing something wrong. I'm trying to filter the Destination on a certain subnet. Wireshark is filtering some lines, but it's leaving in some IP address lines that I would think would be filtered.

This is the DisplayFilter I'm using:

ip.dst ==

Please see the pic in this link:

Thanks for your help.

The packets that seem out of range are all ICMP packets. Probably, the ICMP header contains a copy of the ICMP header of the packet that triggered the need for the ICMP reply, and that header copy contains an IP in the 10.192.240.x range in its Destination field. Look inside the ICMP data and I bet you'll see another IP header sitting inside.

Nice! That was it. Thanks for the explanation!
