Nothing shows up on my NETMON trace, why?

A. Netmon is capable of capturing data on all adapters including RAS adapters and by default it will trace the adapter with the lowest MAC address, which would be 000000000000 for a RAS device and thus the default.

To change the adapter used perform the following:

  1. Within Netmon select Networks from the Capture menu
  2. Select the correct local adapter (the MAC address will be non-zero)

  3. Click OK

Restart your capture. You could check your cards MAC address (if you had several) using the IPCONFIG /ALL command.
