1) not possible, you can filter out your broadcast addresses similar to (2)
2) !ip.dst ==
Hi. When you say "filter out" I am assuming that is the specific traffic that you want to see. I think the above poster assumed the opposite.

1) not (eth.addr == ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff||eth.addr contains 01:00:5e)
2) ip.dst ==

1&2) ip.dst == and not (eth.addr == ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff||eth.addr contains 01:00:5e)

2. Same as gheist
