    I have a wired and wireless adapter and I switch between either at will...
    they are connected to a router which is connected to a cable modem...
    there are always 3 adapters listed on the LnS options tab... either the wired or wireless pc card, wan miniport-network monitor and wan miniport-looknstop....

    LooknStop never automatically chooses the adapter plugged in (when I switch between them) so I've got LnS set for me to choose the adapter manually....

    when I manually choose the adapter plugged in (choosing either of the wan miniports does nothing, ie, no packets go thru LnS) I have no problem connecting to the internet using my browser however...

    my issue is that after I check the box for the adapter and click apply when I go to the LnS welcome tab the filtered packets NEVER increments...total sent/ received packets increments fine...

    NOTE: when I reboot with the adapter already checked and plugged in there is no problem with the filtered packets sent/received incrementing ...so 2me it takes 2 boots for LnS to recognize the adapter and filter packets...

    1. is this a known bug ?? or am I doing something wrong??
    2. are the packets filtering (sometimes I get log events) or not ??
    3. is there any way I can get LnS to automatically choose the adapter ??
    It would be very nice if that would happen...

    Thanks,

    Hi friedclams

    Unfortunately, no, this is not a known bug.

    Could you confirm everything is Ok with the "IP to exclude" selection in the advanced options ?

    If two network interfaces are eligible at the same time, perhpas there is a problem.

    Regards,

    Frederic

    Hi Frederic:

    I switch back and forth between wired and wireless adapters...they are not in my laptop at the same time...

    The cuurent setting for IP to exclude is:
    10;169.254;192.168.0.1;127.0.0.1

    Should this be different ?? I don't even think I've touched this...

    I've gone back to trying automatic to see what happens to get a more exacting test result...

    For now, lets wait until I can isolate some test conditions.

    Thanks,
    Rich

    The Exclude List, 10;169.254;192.168.0.1;127.0.0.1

    Remove the following; 192.168.0.1;

    And now it should look like 10;169.254;127.0.0.1

    And see if that helps :)
