Hello. I have problem with wireshark.It freezes when i start capture on local area network connection. My system is Windows 7 x64 . My internet connection is via router.Packet capture driver is Npcap 1.6. I checked freezing is occuring also when i try to start capture on wireless network connection too. I have unchecked option use an external network name resolver but this didnot helped too.Wireshark is freezing anyway. So why is wireshark freezing ? thanks.

That's probably Npcap 1.60, but what about the Wireshark version?

Not sure, not a Windows guy. Also Windows 7 support ended with Wireshark 3.2, but maybe someone else has an idea.
