There's no monitor mode switch in Wireshark and wlanhelper tells me that i haven't enabled raw capture when installing:
C:\Windows\System32\Npcap>wlanhelper f84d0807-ff61-4817-b2b0-c7d8f41097d4 mode
Error: makeOIDRequest::My_PacketOpenAdapter error (to use this function, you need to check the "Support raw 802.11 traffic" option when installing Npcap)
But this is wrong, i have reinstalled the library several times. Using installer, of course. And of course i did switch on this feature.
I've also checked for stray winpcap DLLs, deleted them and rebooted. Then reinstalled. No luck.

It would be great if Npcap could be coded to achieve this but I think that with the Realtek chipsets the advanced functions such as monitoring are not possible due to limitations in the product. At least that is what the people say who write the Acrylic WiFi Pro software.
