Hi everyone, I am a new user to wireshark. I am having some problem getting wireshark to capture PPP can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong and what do I actually have to do to get the PPP because I have been searching google and youtube for this information and I still haven't found anything that shows me how to get PPP yet.

WinPcap, the standard capture driver used by Wireshark on Windows doesn't handle PPP.
Previously, I have used Microsoft's NetMon to make PPP captures and then export the capture to pcap and open it in Wireshark. I haven't done that for a while so I don't know if MessageAnalyzer (the replacement for NetMon) can capture PPP, but I think it should be able to do so.
Another option is to replace WinPcap with Npcap, which is a modern replacement for WinPcap, but again I haven't tried that for PPP captures. If you do try Npcap, I suggest manually uninstalling WinPcap first.
