RE: Installing WinPcap for Windows XP

The WinPcap driver can't bind to PPP links on Windows NT4/2000/XP, due to Microsoft's broken implentation of PPP.

See http://winpcap.polito.it/misc/faq.htm#Q-16

Windows NT4/2000: the packet driver works correctly on Ethernet networks. We were not able to make it working on PPP WAN links, because of binding problems on the NDISWAN adapter.

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.
