Hi there.  I'm curious why the network light on my Linksys router keeps on blinking even though I'm not doing anything.  Is there a Java program to capture packets so that I would know what my computer is sending and receiving?  I'm on a Windows XP 64 bit system.  Thanks.

Hi Edward. You'll need a little help if you want to capture network packets in your Java program, because no parts of the core Java API will give access to low-level network data. You can also use Wireshark to inspect packets on your network. You can use Wireshark in a number of your posts to show aspects of network performance and to illustrate areas of TCP or IP such as three way TCP handshake.
