i installed urlsnooper on a new pc and it was having problems detecting the network adapter.

i have a few NIC's installed , and thought that maybe that was causing the problem.

disabling the non-connected LAN's allowed urlsnooper to find the (only remaining) network and work properly.

hope this helps!

thanks for the post..

note that automatic network adapter detection is optional, and the better solution is probably to simply disable automatic network adapter detection in advanced mode, and then manually set your adapter.

selecting manually was also not working when all three connections were enabled.

i should mention that all three nic were showing up with the same name
"3com Etherlink PCI"

maybe add a number or use the mac addy or some way to differentiate them ?
