I create and send Ethernet packet by SharpPcap, then I catch those packets by wireshark. When I send those packets to my Intel 82579LM gigabit NIC, I can catch those packets. But I cannot catch any single packet when I send those packets to my Intel X540 T2 10 GE NIC. I can catch packets such as ICMP, TCP but not my own packets. Is the problem on NIC or wireshark? Does wireshark support 10 GE NIC in promiscuous mode? How can I catch packets on my 10 GE NIC as like 1 GE NIC?

The X540 T2 adapter has two ports. Are you sure you send the packet to the port where wireshark is capturing?

Wireshark >= 1.7 is able to capture on multiple interfaces. Can you try that?

Do you see the packet off-box (at a mirror/monitor port of a switch)? If you do see the packet off-box it might be some driver problem.
