Win10Pcap and Panda USB PAU06

So I had to reinstall Windows 10 on my laptop, and proceeded to break a working wifi monitoring setup. It's a Lenovo laptop running Win 10 1809. I've reinstalled the latest drivers from Panda for the wifi adapter. I also uninstalled VMWare as it added several virtual network adapters and a bridge that I thought may be causing problems. Anyhow, I tried various versions and combinations of usbpcap, npcap, and win10pcap. I now have USBPcap and Win10Pcap 10.2.5002 installed, and nmap 7.80 seems to be working just fine. However, when I open Wireshark, only my BT and Ethernet connections are showing. No wifi.

My guess here is that monitor mode must be working on the usb wifi adapter since I can see open ports and IPs in nmap/Zenmap, but for some reason it's not being seen by Wireshark (3.0.5 if it matters). I've tried some ideas that a Google search provided, opening a web page to pass traffic, then refreshing interfaces, etc but still no joy. Any ideas on what to look at next? I'd be happy to provide any logs or config file information if needed. If there is anything I can send to the devs, please let me know the address and what to send.
