Windows 8 added support for MBIM devices/network interfaces. Unfortunately these MBIM interfaces are not showing up

MBIM interfaces transport ip packets and are not wrapped in an Ethernet style frame. Essentially MBIM is a new
interface type that adheres to the USB CDC NCM/MBIM Spec that has a pretty well defined headers. I need the ability
to decode the packets across an MBIM connection.
Any idea how to get this working? MBIM is finally a standard that should replace RNDIS for USB network devices , but
more important work on all platforms wire shark runs on.
Wireshark uses WinPcap  to interface with networking devices on
Windows, so support for these devices will have to be added there
first (this will likely involve adding a new linktype to the official
Once that is done we can add a dissector to Wireshark for the framing
protocol, but that will be (mostly) useless without the WinPcap
component already in place.
(For reference, a general spec seems to be available at .)
