[Winpcap-users] PacketRequest on a Wan-adapter

Hi list.

The PacketRequest() function is obviously not suited for getting
the low-level stuff (such as MTU and MAC-address) from a WAN (PPP/SLIP) 
interface. I'm getting the error "PacketRequest not supported on non-NPF/NPFIM 
adapters" in the winpcap_debug.txt file.

How can I get such things with another function or API? Device in question 
is named "\Device\NPF_GenericDialupAdapter". I can listen on the adapter 
just fine. It is the un-encrypted end of my VPN connection.
