Hello, thank you for your suggestions.

 

As far as I know, there is currently no plan to add this Port mirroring feature back. But your opinions will surely go to our developer and they may evaluate the feasibility later.

 

Sorry about that.

Hi,

 

The port mirroring function is used to debug for professional internet engineers, while it is rare to use for ordinary users; 

 

considering it will affect the internet performance a lot with it enabled mistakenly, so we delete this function.

 

May it help.

@Kevin_Z Hey, that's bad that you just deleted it. You made it impossible to monitor local network traffic from a PC. Please add the feature back. You can put a warning instead so users understand the consequences.

I had a cheaper router many years ago with more advanced features than this Archer C2300. :-(

I as well as many other people who bought this router for their house specifically because port mirroring was an option would love to have this feature back. I'm now having to look into buying a 3 port switch which costs more than this router alone, that will let me have the feature back, so ya pretty pissed this feature was removed. Guess I'm gonna try to downgrade the firmware first to see if that works :-\
