Via private email, James Davis reported this:

There are two instances on the Uthernet page of your AppleWin Help file that use the word "then" where it should be the word "than"! I have marked them below with "then <-- sic: should be "than"!>" so you can find them and correct them in future releases of AppleWin Help. (These are the only two such errors currently in the AppleWin Help file.)

Yours truly,

James Davis

Uthernet network card

Overview:

An Alternative to downloading WinPcap is to get the Ethereal package which includes WinPcap along with Ethereal network analyzer code. To use Ethereal to capture traffic (other then <-- sic: should be "than"!> your own) you must be plugged into a shared hub vs a switch. If you plan on doing any network programming ethereal is a definite must have.
. . .
If you have more then <-- sic: should be "than"!> one interface you may need to select them in turn in order to get the text description for each interface vs what WinPcap likes to use for a reference. Select Ok. and then close AppleWin. Note: Wireless does not work with WinPcap.

I didn't write this but then and than still trip me up as a native speaker! I found The Oatmeal's cheat sheet 10 Words You Need To Stop Misspelling helps to sort out which is what:

TL:DR;

  • Than -- used for object comparison
  • Then -- used for time comparison
