Hello all,

I am using Wireshark on WIN7-64bit. The goal is to spy an Ethernet Powerlink network from my computer. I would then like my network adapter to spy silently. (Powerlink is time triggered and does not like packets transmitted asynchronously by my computer).

I am not a Win7 expert and do not know how to have my network adapter "listen only".

Thanks in advance!

Go to the adapter settings in Windows and remove all checkboxes, especially those for IPv4 and IPv6.
