I have a network adapter with monitor mode and wireshark has the check box next to it but whenever i check the box the software unchecks it

Monitor mode with npcap is a challenge on a good day, basically unusable most other times. Suggest to move to another platform that works better such as Mac or Linux. No platform is perfect (new Macs seem to have issues, Linux can be hit or miss but mostly works). Windows support is poor at best.

A raspberry pi can work. I don’t know if all variants with all distros work well, but there are commercial products on this type of platform. Look for the wlanpi project, for one.
