Test system1: Windows7 home edition Software ver.: wireshark-win64-1.6.7.exe Question: Afer the installation of wireshark, I run it, I can see my 3G network card(Huawei E367) on the dailog: capture-- interface. Second day, I run wireshark again, but I can't find my 3G network card. I check the NPF driver, it is normal running. Why? Test system2: Windows xp professional Software ver.: wireshark-win32-1.6.7.exe Question: The phenomenon is the same as test system1. Why?

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.
