[Winpcap-users] Failure to see broadband device

I'm in a bit of a pickle.

I have installed a Sprint Broadband dongle on which I must take some 
measurements. At first it did not appear in ipconfig but I located the 
option: "Enable Network Adapter (NDIS)." Enabling this option causes the 
adapter to be seen in ipconfig as any other on the machine.

Using sharppcap's GetAllDevices fails to list the adapter.

Wireshark fails to list the adapter as well.

Sharppcap is installed as is WinPcap 4.1 beta 5.

Is Wireshark the definitive test to see if WinPcap is capable of 
detecting this type of adapter?

Can anyone suggest a broadband type or vendor known to work with WinPcap?

Thank you
