Ethernet Adapter not showing source capture


When I use my Ethernet adapter to run a capture I get no source info from my Ethernet adapter. I receive capture information when my Ethernet adapter is the destination and when a broadcast comes to my adapter as the source. I'm using Windows 7 64bit.

"No Source info" does that mean no transmitted frames, only received frames?

Also please state Wireshark version.

Yes, I'm not seeing my adapter as the source, but I see my adapter as the destination. Wireshark 1.12.3

One Answer:


Have a look at similar questions tagged "outbound" e.g. here. The culprit is usually VPN or Endpoint protection software.

After installing sonic wall client on my PC the DNE Lightweight Filter feature had been added to my NIC. I unchecked this feature and now I can see my NIC as a source in my traces. Thanks...
