Just downloaded 3.0.0 and when I restarted and opened up Wireshark, none of my network interfaces were available. I now have 3 separate USBPcap interfaces and no Ethernet or Wifi available. Has anyone else experienced this??

Thank you.

Can you post the contents of the Wireshark -> Help -> About Wireshark -> Wireshark dialog? You can highlight the text and copy it to the clipboard and paste it into your question.

I have the same exact issue after updating to v3.0. I do not have the 'Wireshark dialog' in my 'About' section. I've Googled all over and cannot find a fix...

I do not have the 'Wireshark dialog' in my 'About' section.

What happens if you select "About Wireshark" from the "Help" menu?

I was able to resolve my issue by removing NPCAP from 'Device Manager'. I had two NPCAP Loopback Adapters under 'Network Adapters', I removed both, rebooted and reinstalled npcap-0.99-r9.exe. Wireshark is back to normal and all interfaces are listed...

Please report this as an npcap issue on the issues page of the nmap GitHub repository, so that they can try to fix it (and thus try to keep other users from having the same problem).
