Wireshark uses WinPcap to list interfaces and to capture from the interfaces. If WinPcap is not able to list the reliance data card interface, you can contact the WinPcap team at

A "data card" (i.e., an add-on network interface for mobile phone data) is a PPP interface on Windows. WinPcap is what Wireshark uses to capture traffic on Windows; as this item in the WinPcap FAQ notes, WinPcap supports PPP interfaces on 32-bit Windows XP, but does not support it on Windows Vista or later (or on 64-bit Windows XP).
