Unable to connect to network when Npcap Packet Driver is enabled

I just installed Wireshark 3.2.3 which installed the latest Npcap packet driver. If the Npcap Packet Driver is enabled under my NIC card configuration, the workstation will not connect to the network. If I uncheck the Npcap Packet Driver, diable/enable to NIC card, I'm able to connect to the network just fine.

Does anyone have an idea what might be causing this? I updated my NIC driver (Intel 82579LM) to the latest release (3/29/2016) but the issue persists. I'm running on a Windows 7 box. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
