    It's a Draytek 2900Gi. There isn't anything obvious in the menus...

    I would like to monitor packets to/from a particular wifi client.

    SNMP monitoring is a distinct possibility with this router.

    and it's probably your best option for monitoring packets to/from a
    particular wifi client.

    Hi

    I use PRTG Traffic Grapher from www.paessler.com with my 3COM router, its
    free with limitations but is good enough for my simple needs. It may suit
    you. It requires SNMP I can't say if your particular router supports that
    or not?

    Have you tried reading the documentation for your router?

    There isn't any. This is a Draytek!

    So have you tried PRTG then?

    I would think to enable SNMP you'll need to access your router's setup
    from your browser. On the 3COM its more or less just a matter of
    ticking the box!

    Manuals are at ftp://ftp.draytek.com/ and pick your router. Alternately
    look on the CD that came with your router

    as a bird scarer :)
