Is there a way to force the Interface List to show the Device Description instead of "Local Area Connection..". Preferably I'd like to compile this in so I never have to deal with this again.

Thanks, Brian

Sure, just go to Edit -> Preferences -> Capture and edit the list of interfaces. Whatever you enter as comment for each interface will be shown later in the Interface List.
