To modify capture buffer settings
Open Network Monitor.
If prompted, select the local network from which you want to capture data by default.
On the Capture menu, click Buffer Settings.
Specify the maximum size of the capture buffer. If necessary, also adjust the maximum size of frames to be captured, and then click OK.
To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Administrators group on the local computer, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority. If the computer is joined to a domain, members of the Domain Admins group might be able to perform this procedure.
To start Network Monitor, click Start, click Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and double-click Network Monitor.
If your buffer setting exceeds the available memory on your computer, frames might be dropped.
