I use Windows 7 64 bit and Wireshark Version 1.8.0 (SVN Rev 43431 from /trunk-1.8). WinPcap : Version 4.1.2 I work with Internet dsl network connection. When I open the Capture Interface window that lets me see all the interface I see tens of packets on a specific interface. When I capture the proper interface by the "Start" botton I get (no filter) just one frame. Can someone advise me why do I see no packets though I navigete fine in the Internet? Regards I. Lesher

Maybe you configured Wireshark to stop capturing after 1 packet.

Capture --> Interfaces --> Options --> Stop Capture ... --> ... after [1] packet(s)

If that's not configured: What is the single packet you see?
