Just now, I had released WinPcap 4.1.4 (a non-official name, also called NPcap 1.0.0) for testing. I have spent nearly 
one month to port it from NDIS5.0 to NDIS6.x. It can gain better performance than the official WinPcap (currently 4.1.3 
version) under Win7 and Win8 (behaves the same as the old one under XP and Vista). I have rewritten the original NSIS 
installation script and packed the new WinPcap 4.1.4 into an EXE package, so you can test it easily. The installation 
package is given below:
The installer only:
The entire code base:
Because the driver has not been signed, so Win7 x64 and Win8 x64 systems will need to disable driver signing 
enforcement before installing. You can google "disable driver signing enforcement" for the method, it's very easy and 
the only need is a reboot.
I have tested this release under some systems for the basic use of both Nmap and Wireshark, and it works well. But I 
don't know if it is enough robust under advanced usages and other systems. I hope that you can find bugs as many as 
The systems I have tested:
Windows 2003 Enterprise with SP2 x86
Windows 2003 Enterprise R2 with SP2 x64
Windows 7 Ultimate with SP1 x86
Windows 7 Ultimate with SP1 x64
Windows 8 Enterprise x86
Windows 8 Enterprise x64

Notice: Save your data in case your system suddenly crashes for BSoD.
