I have an old HP laptop being used to scan servers on our network . We have recently upgraded to Nexus switches which only communicate on 1gb minimum - the HP laptop only goes up to 100mb.
I brought a USB NIC with a 1gb capability - this functions and is recognised by the Win7 OS , but when I try and sniff traffic with Wireshark(or use NMAP/Nessus,etc) , the interface is not displayed .
Anyone have an idea where I am going wrong please?

You need to reload WinPcap after you plugged in the USB interface. In an elevated DOS box (run as administrator), do the following:
You should now see the interface in Wireshark.
