Need gateway app to sniff all network/wifi traffic

Archived from groups: alt.internet.wireless,comp.security (More info?)

I have a private network using a router with a built-in wifi AP. I'm
paranoid that someone might be on my wifi. I want to monitor all the
traffic that's going through the router for a day or two and collect any
interesting packets e.g. unencrypted web sites, smtp, etc. (I think) I
want to run some kind of software that will live on a spare linux box and
compile this data. I'll set the router to use that machine as a gateway.
Does anyone know some software that will do this?

Thanks for your help,
Mitchua
