Hello, I installed last few versions of wireshark/ethereal under Win7 profesional. I have problem with capturing. There are not possible capture packets from modem "PPP" or from modem Broadband like wifi adapter. I have only one adapter for capturing - LAN.
I have Win XP too, but there are is possible capture both.
Wireshark uses WinPcap for traffic capture on Windows, just as it uses libpcap on UN*X. Question Q-5 in the WinPcap FAQ says that WinPcap supports PPP devices in Windows up to Windows XP, but doesn't support it in WIndows Vista or Windows 7. Question Q-16 says that support for Wi-Fi devices is limited.
