running Wireshark as a service
Has anyone successfully run Wireshark (or similar tool) as a service at system startup to gather frame data from a wireless card as it attempts to make a connection?
I am trying to resolve a problem with an apparently random loss of connectivity with our wireless network.
I have run Wireshark on a system exhibiting the problem and now I would like to repeat it on one that is working successfully to see where the process breaks. The problem is the wireless connection is made before logon so I cannot start Wireshark soon enough to gather the data.

You should be able to launch it into capture by providing all of the right details into the command line at launch:
9.2.*Start Wireshark from the command line
and you should be able to set it up to run the GUI app as a service by using the Srvany wrapper from the Win 2k3 resource kit:

Disable the wireless once you're logged on, then re-enable it once you've started Wireshark?

I tried that, unless I missed something (very new to Wireshark, so quite possible) I discovered Wireshark expected to find the interface before it would start the trace.
