wireshark 3.2.7, win10pro

ethers file in %APPDATA%\Wireshark

View>Name Resolution>Resolve Physical Addresses: checked

Edit>Preferences>Name Resolution>Resolve MAC addresses: checked

Edit>Preferences>Name Resolution>Use an external name resolver: unchecked

This used to work for me, now it doesn't. I don't think that I have changed anything is this regard.

Sample from ethers file:

00:0b:82:8e:72:a3 DP750
d0:50:99:ab:d4:74 E51560V4

Did you restart Wireshark after modifying the file?

Issue 14252 mentions restart needed.

Yes - WireShark was restarted after ethers file changes.

Whoops, user error.

The Edit>Preferences>Appearance>Columns weren't correct and had to be edited. Sorry for the topic pollution.
