Wireshark-users: [Wireshark-users] Newbie question

I have just installed Wireshark on a laptop which I want to use to monitor my home network. My setup is three desktops connected to a Westell 327W Verizon DSL wirless router. One desktop is hardwired and the other two and the laptop are wireless. The hard-wired desktop is using XP Pro SP2 and all the other desktops and the laptop are XP Home SP2.


When I initiate Wireshark on the laptop it seems to see everything that is occurring on the laptop but not very much on the other PCs. Why is that? Am I expecting too much from Wireshark or do I not have it configured properly?


Thanks in advance for any help you can provide…
