Re: [TV] Wireshark - How-to HELP
1. I'm not familiar with FibeTV or what it is,
2. I am extremely familiar with Wireshark and am happy to explain to you bits/pieces of networking if you need it,
3. I need to understand exactly what it is you're looking for to be able to say whether or not Wireshark can help you. These description are simply too vague:
said by urbang33k:
How can I use wireshark to determine if there is a device on a FibeTV customers private network that is interfering/conflicting with the FIbeTV recievers and causing 'loss of signal'. IE, printers, GMOTE android app, virus/malware infected computers, etc.
said by urbang33k:If you could please be very, very specific and speak in IP network or networking terms (I'm talking OSI layer here) that would be great, otherwise I'm not 100% sure what you're asking. It almost sounds like you're asking "how do I determine if Device X and Device Y on a LAN segment are both trying to use the same IP address?" but I'm not sure because of the ambiguity of your question.
I am a FibeTV tech and I am asking a very specific question regarding wireshark specifically and whether anyone knows if it can be used to determine if there are conflicting(with FibeTV) hardware/software running the customers LAN.
If you aren't familiar with networking -- I'm not talking about "IP addresses", I'm talking about protocols starting with layer 2 (ARP) all the way down to layer 4 (TCP/UDP) -- then I'm not sure I can help you at all, as I would be spending more time teaching you about IP networking than I would how to use Wireshark.
