Wireshark-dev: Re: [Wireshark-dev] Wireshark on vista
It's one of those things I want to look at, but probably it won't happen for the next release of WinPcap (4.1).
Consider that the only devices affected by this problem are the wireless devices using a native wi-fi driver.

Are we going to fix it? There should be a way to get the device name/description.
If there are multiple WiFi devices (or other network devices showing same problem) on a same machine, currently it's hard to tell which one is which.
 
Thanks,
Joshua

Native wifi adapters on Vista/Win7 have an Intermediate driver (from MS) between their miniport driver and winpcap itself, and such IM driver traps the request that WinPcap uses to get the name, returning just "Microsoft".

Yes, I do have one listed as "Microsoft: \Device\NPF_{7D4C2BA0-BCB3-47D6-8E5C-5D30946E8150}".
What does this tell? Is it the wifi card I have? Then why there is no descriptive name like what we get on xp?
 
Thanks,
Joshua

What is the list of adapters returned by Wireshark? Do you have an adapter just called "Microsoft"?

With Wireshark 1.0.4 running on vista, I cannot see my WiFi card as a capture interface though I can see my Ethernet card.
Is this a known issue? Or I might be doing sth wrong?
 
Many thanks,
Joshua
