Hi all,

I have been using wireshark to analyze my wireless traffic for a while. The past couple of times I've tried to use it, my wireless card (an Atheros AR9285) doesn't even show up on the interfaces list anymore. I re-installed WinPcap and wireshark (64-bit) but to no avail. Any ideas?

Would it help to know I am using Windows 7 64-bit?

This is a possible duplicate of NPF driver Problem in Windows 7. More at Wireshark wiki on privileges.
