  I've wanted to do this, too, but so far as I've been able to find,
Ethereal hooks into the Ethernet NIC drivers, not the TCP/IP stack.
So sniffing TCP/IP over SLIP/PPP is not an available option.
  (I would love to be wrong about this....)

What happens when you launch Ethereal and try to capture packets?

I'm trying to run Ethereal so I can see what's going on with 
my modem.  I've
tried to install WinPcap as I have been told I'm supposed to 
but I've not
been able to find the .inf file to install a driver like it 
was reported I
need to do.  I've  looked on Google and at WinPcaps webpage 
to try to find
out if there may be any thing that I've missed, but from what 
I've looked
at, everything appears to be installed correctly, but it 
isn't working. 
Thanks in advance,
