I am having Windows 7 hosted on VMWare which is running on Windows7 as well. My guest W7 is using my client network card as NAT.

Now i want to monitor some traffic from some specfic website. I installed Wireshark and started capturing packets in my guest W7. I noticed that it has been capturing all the packets i.e. windows updates and all the random things which windows does in backend. Now what i want, I want traffic specific to website or say chrom or any browser.

I'm confused, are you trying to disable network traffic, or just see only certain network traffic? Please clarify your question. – imtheman Jul 18 '12 at 1:47

Wireshark has traffic monitoring options using filters.

You can filter monitored traffic from source IP to a certain destination, and origin–destination port. See: CaptureFilters - The Wireshark Wiki
