Hi

While displayed by ipconfig /all as a ethernet interface, the MS loopback
Ethernet interface is not recognized as such by WireShark. 
Carte Ethernet Connexion au réseau local:

                                            fec0:0:0:ffff::2%1
                                            fec0:0:0:ffff::3%1

This loopback is quite useful when no real network is installed and one has to
test a network software suing WireShark.


TIA for adding it to WireShark.
