Winpcap/Ethereal on USB modems

Hello all,

I was curious to discover that ethereal doesn't work over my new USB
cable modem. I assumed this might be a WinPcap problem and tried to
look into this but found that, despite USB modems being increasingly
common for broadband (certainly in the UK) there is very little detail
out there, except that the site says that WinPcap may or may
not work. Sometimes. And, of course, depending.

I'm running XP with a Netgear MA101 wireless USB talking to a Netgear
ME102 AP which is connected to a set-top box providing wireless access.
Surely I'm not the only person noticing that winpcap doesn't work in
this kind of environment?

Can anyone shed any light?

Sometimes drivers for USB modems will add a new network device. You might
want to try uninstalling etherreal and winpcap and then installing them
again. It is possible that they are just not seeing the device because it
was recently added as a new network device.
