Hello Arjit,

Wireshark or Ethereal are best tool to capture and identify broadcast traffic in LAN.

Hope to Help !!

Hi there,

the programs ganesh mentioned earlier are not from cisco, they are network monitoring applications, u use them to monitor network traffic pattern and identify traffic types and source / destinations.

you could find additional information in their respective website.....: http://www.wireshark.org

Hope it Helps,

Hello Arjit,

In order to do the above implemenation you need to install the wireshark on your system and run on one of the adapter to see the traffic pattern.

Check out the below link for installtion for wireshark

Hello Ganesh,

Thanks for te reply.

Got your point. One more thing i want to ask you that what frame in wireshark is to identify that there is broadcast or loop in the network.

And what will be the sourse and destination of that frame.
