Monitoring outgoing and incoming traffic?

Community Member

I have a Google mesh router which accepts incoming signal from my provider, and other devices are either hardwired into that router or use the wifi. Using the Google Home app (since the WiFi app is discontinued), how do I see the outgoing and incoming specific ip and/or domain names in the traffic? I can get to each of the devices, but see only speed, points, and devices. information.

Hi SleepyCatzzz,


Thanks for posting.


The Google Home app shows how much data your devices upload and download. Devices that used the network within the last 30 days will be displayed including ones not currently connected. Here's how:


  1. Open the Google Home app .
  2. Tap Wi-Fi .
  3. At the top, tap Devices.
  4. Tap a specific device and a tab to find additional details.
    • Speed: Real time usage is how much data your device is currently using. Usage is how much data the device has used over the selected time frame.
    • Info: Device details like connection status, IP address, and MAC address.



Hey folks,

I wanted to follow up and see if you are still in need of any help. Have you had the chance to try the suggestion above? If yes, how is it?


Hi everyone,

Just one quick final check in here since activity has slowed down. We'll be locking the thread in the next 24 hours, but if you still need help, I would be happy to keep it open. If there's more we can do, just let me know.


Thank you for this information, but I was looking for a way to see what ip/domains were incoming to monitor what web addresses the device was looking at. This was possible with my former netgear router, but I don't see and of the incoming ip/domain names in the Info tab. I see only the device's ip.

I want to see what domains my children are looking at.

Hey SleepyCatzzz,

We appreciate your interest however, we don't have any news to share about a way for the Home app to check what domains are being visited while connected to your Google Wifi network. We're always looking for ways to improve and we'll take it as feedback.

I also suggest that you send feedback by following this link. Let me know if you have other questions or concerns, otherwise I’ll be locking this thread after 24 hours.
