Hi there, Thanks for reading this. I have a problem capturing packets with my Edimax EW-7711USn, i get this message “The capture session could not be initiated” when i try to capture. I think the edimax is not compatible with WireShark or Winpcap. I cannot find a compatibility NIC list anyware?

Do you have sufficient privileges? What do you get if you run "tshark -D"? Which OS? Which version of Wireshark? Which version of WinPcap?
