How do I monitor websites visited through my wifi?

asked 2018-12-25 05:59:40 +0000

I would like to view a list of all websites visited on my wifi network. How would I do that using Wireshark? I would like to see the DNS name and not just the IP address of the website.

IMHO the best way is definitely to capture the information from the wifi router. Depending on the router, this information may not be freely available from the manufacturers firmware and installing a replacement firmware such as OpenWRT will allow the capture of the required information.

go to statistics, Endpoints and select the IPV4 tab. also ensure that your "name resolution is checked off"

While this answer informs on how to view the endpoints from an existing capture, it doesn't tell the user how to make such a capture from a wifi network.

sorry . you would need to span or place a tap on the port that your access point is connected to

Wireshark probably is not the best tool for this. Maybe try something like

Or maybe some type of proxy on the wired side that can log. In any case, managing wireless traffic, like this, with encryption is going to be problematic.
