Hello, I'm using wireless router and I want to sniff my whole traffic.

I want to ask you how to setup wireshark to capture whole ethernet traffic because in menu I have only local area connection.

I would suggest you start here:

And if you have questions regarding some topics there, you are welcome to ask here again.

I tried to analize what was written there but couldn't understand how to setup the program. By default the program had Promiscuous mode turned on, I read somewhere that router should have port mirroring but I couldn't find it on my router. Is there any way to trace other computer traffic ?

I converted your answer to a comment, as it is more a comment. You should read the packet capture playbooks: As I think they explain your questions. And a mirror port does not every sitch have.
