Wireshark-dev: [Wireshark-dev] ring buffer

I am implementing a packet sniffer with VS. I posted some time ago problems with losing packets, and someone here suggested me that it could be a problem between disk access and NIC speed.

I have done some research, and it seems this doesn't happen to Wireshark because of the use of a ring buffer. Can someone tell me which files (apart from ringbuffer.c) are involved in Wireshark avoiding packet loss? Can I use any configuration of Winpcap function parameters for losing less packets?

Thanks in advance
