Too many Network Ports (please help)

(Glpi 0.83.4 & FusionInventory Server 0.83+1.0 & FusionInventory Agent 2.2.5-1)

Under the "Network Port" of many our computers there are a lot of network cards (with that many MAC addresses).
One of the card is physical, the others are virtual.

Is there a way to show only the physical ones?

Re: Too many Network Ports (please help)

In configuration of FusionInventory, you can say not import virtual network card...

I already tried this, but the only effect is that the virtual cards are not imported under the "Components" tab, while they are still visible under the "Network port" tab.

This is a problem, because this way almost all the computers have 3 or 4 MAC addresses associated to them, and some of them (associated to virtual devices) are identical.

Ok, thank you!

Just to be sure, with the "Virtual network card" disabled under FusionInventory, the "Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter" shouldn't appear under the "Network port", right?

Re: Too many Network Ports (please help)

You can see in the XML of agent in section of network cards and you have a node 'VIRTUAL'

Re: Too many Network Ports (please help)

Mmm... I think it's Windows that sends the wrong information to the fusioninventory agent.

For example:

<NETWORKS>
<DESCRIPTION>Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter</DESCRIPTION>
<MACADDR>16:2F:68:81:88:F0</MACADDR>
<PNPDEVICEID>{5D624F94-8850-40C3-A3FA-A4FD2080BAF3}\\VWIFIMP\\5&1EF78B4A&0&01</PNPDEVICEID>
<SPEED>9223372036854775807</SPEED>
<STATUS>Down</STATUS>
<TYPE>Ethernet</TYPE>
<VIRTUALDEV>0</VIRTUALDEV>
</NETWORKS>

While other virtual network devices are correctly identified as <VIRTUALDEV>1</VIRTUALDEV> (and not shown under the MAC ADDRESSES).

Re: Too many Network Ports (please help)

Yes, windows give this informations. Are you sure it's a virtual device? not the wifi card?

Re: Too many Network Ports (please help)

Yes, I'm sure. The physical wifi card has another driver.
If I disable this "Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter" I can still connect though the wireless card.
