I am using windows server 2003 SR2, there are two HP NC373i Multifunction Gigabit Network adapters. One is disabled and #2 is enabled.
When I bring up the Wireshark I only see "Adapter for generic dialup and VPN capture".
This was showing the network adapter last week and I was able to capture. Choosing the "Adapter for generic dialup and VPN capture" doesn't capture any packets (as you would expect).
I have since upgraded wireshark to version 1.4.6 and WinPCap to version 4.1.2 but this doesn't help at all.
The installs and the login were done with administrator privileges.
This question is marked "community wiki".

See http://www.winpcap.org/misc/faq.htm#Q-4. Since
You might check to see if the npf driver is running. See http://www.winpcap.org/misc/faq.htm#Q-3.

Are you using the 64bit version of Win2K3? If so, are you using the 64bit version of Wireshark? I have heard some people say the 32bit version does not see interfaces on Win7-64 bit.
You state that one of the NICs is disabled. Did you try enabling that NIC to see if both NICs then become visible? As you say the 1st NIC is disabled, I wonder whether that is blocking WinPcap from accessing the second NIC (with the same driver). But this is just a hunch :-)

I am not sure that this is the complete answer to this issue. The issue was solved up upgrading to the latest HP NIC driver.
