dear sharkianers: is there any opportunity to capture nothing but date, ip & mac-address automatically each 24 hours to a file on windows? i tried the capturing with detailed options but that does log everything instead of the summary only.

You can use TShark:
$ tshark -i 3 -T fields -e frame.time -e ip.addr -e eth.addr -a duration:86400 > outfile.txt

You can find more information in the man-page.
