Please provide Help -> About Wireshark details.

My guess is that you've installed npcap instead of winpcap, but not in winpcap-compatibility mode.

I have Npcap 0.922, and WinPcap (internal version 5.0.992.323) installed

I uninstalled Npcap 0.922, then installed Wpcap 4.1.3 from, and this has solved the problem. Thanks for pointing me on the right path.
