If you think you are going to be able to 'see' everything from
one computer, you are wrong.

The only way to do that would be to read the link Navas
posted, and then buy or setup some packet sniffer thing that
automatically looks for 'suspicious' packets.

That would involve putting a *HUB* between your modem and the
rtr, as a 'switch' most likely allow proper sniffing of
everything.

You have a NAT rtr. If no ports are mapped to an inside PC,
there's virtually no chance that anyone from the outside will
be able to get inside w/o already being inside, as in through
a spyware/malware/trojan infected PC.

As for the wireless, use the latest authentication and
encryption protocol.

    Wireshark or kismet or airdump-ng. Last two are for linux.

    So I suppose wireshark

    www.wireshark.org


    You need some kind of gateway to use netscan or nmap properly,
ie, set your computer to use the gateway of the network you want to
scan.

    I'm simplifying. Study up on it.
