    Unfortunately, this question is not understandable. Please explain what you are hoping to do, what you've tried so far, and what happens.

    thanks,

    Sorry, let me be more clear, I have  3 laptops  which are wirelessly connect to  Linksys E2500 wifi router. So, How do I force these laptops to use only Fiddler manipulated traffic? Any ideas?

    Thank you.

    P.S
      
    I do not want the  Manual method like, go into each web browser and enter the IP/DNS name and port for the proxy server.

    I think it's possible to specify a proxy server to use with DHCP, but I doubt you have that level of configuration in the DHCP server that is built into your router.

    Even if that is possible, you can't really "force" connected systems to use the proxy, as the user can always configure their system not to use the proxy that is advertised by the DHCP server.

    Graeme is correct; there's no way to "force" a client to use a given proxy, short firewalling all traffic that isn't going through a proxy (and that doesn't force the client to proxy, it merely makes traffic fail if unproxied).

    Fiddler offers a DHCP WPAD server add-on: http://www.telerik.com/fiddler/add-ons but again, there's no guarantee that your clients will respect it.

    Thanks, @Graeme and @Eric Lawrence

    If the user's web browser is set to auto discover, So when they are wirelessly connected to the router the traffic should be forwarded to Fiddler and then to the internet . Basically, Can Fiddler act as a gateway between the router and the internet?

    Thank you.

    You're asking a few questions, but the important one is:

    "Q: Can Fiddler act as a transparent proxy, where the client is unaware of it?"

    A: Not really, no.
