The WinPcap documentation seems to suggest that your call should be
putting the adapter into promiscuous mode.
However, there are two differences between the call you're making and
the call Ethereal makes:
1) Ethereal calls pcap_open_live(), not pcap_open();
2) the code that Ethereal uses to call pcap_open_live() is in C.
Either of those might be the cause of the problem you're seeing.
