Wireshark Brings Down the Network?

I'm writing some network related codes now and would like to use Wireshark to see what's going on.

It's strange that anytime I start wireshark (using "sudo wireshark" to see the NICs) and press the capture button, the wireless network is brought down. The wireless menu icon goes gray, and when I try to reconnect, it reports a failure. However, I can turn AirPort Off and turn it on again to connect to the network again, and Wireshark works fine.

No idea why. I'm using Mac OS X 10.4.11 and Wireshark 0.99.7 with libpcap 0.9.4.
