[Winpcap-users] packet loss

How could I buffer the data? I don’t know how to catch packets. I just use winpcap functions, and googling I just find solutions in Unix

The problem might have to do with debugging. Running a program in a debugger 
slows it down considerably. Depending on the network traffic, this might be 
a problem.

The other possibility is slow disk writing. Try buffering the data into 
bigger "blocks" before writing to disk.
