Promiscuous Mode Driver for NIC
I'm trying to get a 3com 3C905C-TX NIC into promiscuous mode. Running win98. I have downloaded and installed ethereal and winpcap. When I run ethereal I can only see netbios names...and all of my own TCP and HTTP traffic. I've checked 3com's site and downloaded the latest drivers and diagnostics but still cannot configure it correctly. I've searched all over the web and I did find support page for a security software maker that says this card supports promiscuous mode. All the info I've read indicates most cards support this mode.
It doesn't appear this card will get me there, does anyone know of a nic for windows that definitely supports promiscuous mode? Or anyone with any suggestions on what I have missed in the setup/install?
Any help appreciated
