Ever since I installed Wireshark on this PC, 3 days ago, every time it boots up, the internet doesn't work until I start to capture packets from Ethernet. Anything connected to the wifi works just fine, it's just the device with WS on it. Some people seem to have similar problems, but all similar threads have their internet cut off after they start capturing rather than before. I've tried waiting for a couple of hours, but no matter what, the only temporary solution seems to be booting wireshark along with everything else

I have seen some werird things with some npcap versions. Doenloading npcap instaeer, removing npcap en install it manually did solve it at that time.
