Can CommView capture data from a network adapter that doesn't have an IP address?
Yes. In fact, the network adapter does not need to be bound to TCP/IP or any other protocol. In a situation where you are troubleshooting a network it might be necessary to be able to plug in the computer running CommView into an available port on a hub. In such cases you do not need to guess the IP address available in the LAN segment, all you need to do is unbind the network adapter from TCP/IP and start capturing. Open Control Panel => Network Connections, right-click on the connection icon, select Properties, and uncheck the boxes corresponding to the protocols you don't want to be bound to the NIC.
