well a "network analyzer" means so so many different things it's unreal. maybe you want wireshark? maybe ntop? maybe iptraf? maybe just a standard system tray network monitor widget?

They all can be used to get some info about network connections.

I usually set up a bridge and place it between my network and router. I then run ntop on it.

You'll find a slackbuild for ntop at http://slackbuilds.org
