Because mobile phone modems show up as PPP connections, Wireshark uses WinPcap to capture traffic on Windows, and WinPcap can't handle PPP connections on Windows 7 and requires special work to handle them on Windows XP.

As you know, I can capture the Huawei 3G network card data flow while I run wireshark first time. But the second time, Huawei 3G network card can not be shown in the 'Interface', so I am confused. How can I make the definite object shown in the interface of wireshark?
