Hi, I want to capture packets from a 3g usb modem via wireshark. Currently I am unable to view the usb modem in the Interface list. Is there any way or workaround by which I can let wireshark identify the usb modem and capture packets from it. Thanks

If this is on Windows, unfortunately, capturing on PPP-based interfaces such as dial-up interfaces - and mobile phone modem interfaces, which, I think, look like dial-up interfaces on Windows - is only supported by WinPcap, and thus only supported by Wireshark, on Windows 2000 and 32-bit versions of Windows XP and Windows Server 2003, as per the WinPcap FAQ question Q-5. It is not, for example, supported on WIndows Vista or WIndows 7.
