Network Card Promiscuous Mode.

Network cards can work either with Promiscuous mode (mixed mode, listening mode) on or off.

When Promiscuous mode is off, they receive only packets addressed to IP address of the internet device (for example: computer, or phone) they are interface to.

When Promiscuous mode is on, they receive all packets that they are aware of. This allows for packet sniffing (reading data from Local Area Network or the Internet).
