The interface details are not available anymore in the latest version of wireshark. In the help section 4.4. The “Capture Interfaces” dialog box, in figure 4.1 you have details button available. I do not have this in the new Wireshark. How I can see the details of my interface in this case? Thanks.

The interface details (which was only supported on Windows versions) dialog has not been replicated in the new Qt interface.

What information from the old dialog are you looking for?

Thank you for the confirmation grahamb, I would like to check the Wireshark reported Link speed for my interface. See if it matches the one from Windows- control panel.

I'm not 100% certain, but I believe that Wireshark, via WinPcap, retrieved the info from the NIC in the same way that the Adaptor status is shown in the Windows status dialog, i.e. Wireshark didn't do anything to actually check what was reported was accurate.
