    Traps are only send to your machine if it is configured as an SNMP Manager at your router.
    You can try capturing all the SNMP packet from the router Using ethereal.

    SNMP Traps are nothing but packets coming to at port 162 So read the UDP Socket at 162 port no. and you will get the full SNMP Trap PDU.

    It is because the router is sending the SNMP V3 traps which supports encryption so the packets can be read by the SNMP manager which is configured in the router for which you require admin rights at the router and you shall be able to view and modify the router configuration . using the manual provided.
    Other way to remove encryption is that at the router you configure it to through SNMP V1 or V2c traps at your IP. and then you can capture it from ethereal and view them.

    Here important thing is that you are the adminstrator of the router or an user.
    If you are an user you can try accessing the various information about the router using public community. (This is the community mostly configured for user.)
    If you are the adminstrator then you can do a lot by going through the manual of the router.
