GL-AT750S-EXT wifi traffic capture

Good day, and thanks in advance.

I am using my AR750S as a wifi repeater. Home network has no wired hosts. I’d like to use it to write all wifi traffic as pcap to either the SD card or USB SSD.

Is there a fairly straightforward way to accomplish this? I’ve searched the forum, but the only thig I’ve seen are instructions on capturing from eth or wan ports. I’m strictly interested in all of the wifi traffic coming through the router–whether lateral or egress/ingress.


Hi @theologix ,

Check out: [OpenWrt Wiki] How to capture, filter and inspect packets using tcpdump or wireshark tools

To be able to do this you will have to enable SSH.

As it is not a built in feature of OpenWrt nor GL-iNets web interface you will have to deep dive in to the Linux terminal interface.
