UrlSnooper / Try Npcap?
« on: October 16, 2018, 04:48 PM »
I am using a Lenovo Ideapad 330 with Intel Dual Band Wireless AC3165 and Windows 10. I had the same problem as Supermann getting URL Snooper to recognize my wireless adapter or a working alternative. On several tries, URL Snooper's Auto Determine could not find an adapter to support capture. One one occasion, URL Snooper selected a Microsoft adapter option, but that adapter did not work. Manually selecting the various adapter options also did not work. In researching this issue, I came across Npcap. I solved my problem by installing Npcap and selecting the WinPcap Compatible option to replace WinPcap. When I next ran Auto Determine, URL Snooper chose "Network adapter 'Microsoft' on local host - rpcap://\Device\NPF_{omitted}." This adapter has been working fine to capture URLs from browsers and applications. URL Snooper still does not see the AC3165 adapter. Bear in mind that I am not an expert user, so I cannot offer a technical explanation or even confirm that Npcap made the difference. I am just happy I don't have to figure out how to use Wireshark!
