    Is it possible to turn the router ethernet ports from switch mode to hub?

    reason . packet sniffing on LAN

    I guess
    ifconfig eth0 promisc
    might help. This turns on the promiscous function, which make it "accept all packets", but I don't know if that also means "rebroadcast all packets".

    ifconfig eth0 -promisc
    to turn it off.
