This thread is full of eristic intent and sophistry from the author. I vote we shut the thread down as non-productive.

I pointed that out also. It is called a bait and switch in advertising. People see 40m/40 and you hope they don't read the fine print on what they are really receiving. I also pointed out that the setting is less powerful then a modern smartphone. It seems like you are the ONLY person who is confus...

New binaries shortly.
New binaries for version Ethereal 11.53

Stefan is right. The delay is about 11 seconds. I saw such a behaviour only in an old version of Wasp by John Stanback . He is a very nice guy. Maybe you can contact him in this case by mail.
