used wireshark maybe few months ago interfaces showed up fine opened it recently and for some reason they are not showing up. wireshark is up to date so it winpcap. running on windows 7 64 bit. Tried run as admin that was first thing i tried, tried these commands Ipconfig /all


Ipconfig /release

Ipconfig /renew

Ipconfig /flushdns

Netsh winsock reset

Netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt



Run Prompt

Regsvr32 netshell.dll

Regsvr32 netvfgx.dll

Regsvr32 netman.dll

None of these seemed to work. also uninstalled wireshark and re installed it and seen on here someone said try to install winpcap from the direct site that didn't work as well.

Never mind. Turns out it was npcap adapter. I had it disabled but guess that wasn't enough. uninstalled it. now wireshark works.
