    "Great tool for network monitoring"

    December 30, 2011  |   By Jbone1337

    Version: Wireshark 1.6.4

    Pros

    -Monitors all network traffic on a network.
    -Very advanced/complex software, has lots of tools and filter options.
    -FREE!

    Cons

    none that i can think of

    Summary

    Great tool for both monitoring your network and just for educational purposes to see what different kinds of network traffic looks like. (for example port scans and ping sweeps).

    Can easily see what everyone is doing on your network.
    Also a great tool if you think you have some kind of backdoor trojan on your computer, you can see any odd traffic and even see where you the backdoor is sending/receiving data from.

    "Great Packet Sniffer"

    December 12, 2011  |   By pflores456

    Version: Wireshark 1.6.4

    Pros

    Fairly easy to install and captures quite well.

    Cons

    The program has numerous options and enabling or disabling the options requires an in-depth knowledge of this program.

    Summary

    This is a great program if you have a need to capture data for analysis. The program performs very well and is essentially transparent.

    "Great Application!"

    March 10, 2011  |   By RexBrown

    Version: Wireshark 1.4.4

    Pros

    Wireshark has the ability to analyze packets at a low level as well as a wide selection of filtering criteria which make finding a particular packet in a flood of others.

    Cons

    It is a complicated interface, however, if the user understands the information being parsed it is not too difficult to wade through it.

    "It is a good packet sniffer"

    October 27, 2010  |   By Bush29kt

    Version: Wireshark 1.4.1

    Pros

    The ability to monitor network traffic flow and see if there is not any traffic

    Cons

    Too much data so the need to learn how to filter out what traffic to look for

    Summary

    The program is good because it gives someone the information about uploads and downloads

    "Very good and simple to use"

    August 23, 2010  |   By HStables

    Version: Wireshark 1.2.10

    Pros

    Very simple to use and works very well. I use it primarily for trouble shooting network operation and congestion. Works great for monitoring wireless traffic on our network to see any problem areas or who is using up the bandwidth in real time.

    Cons

    Have not used many of its features as of yet to find any bad areas.

    "A great product!"

    June 10, 2010  |   By Adrian_C88

    Version: Wireshark 1.2.9

    Pros

    Great product. I use it to test individual connections within my business network. Labels source and destination IP's, port connections, etc... This is a must for network IT's.

    Cons

    When printing, it doesn't format it neatly. descriptions can be a little confusing.

    Summary

    Great product. Will continue to use.

    "An industry-standard tool"

    April 8, 2010  |   By Tisiphne

    Version: Wireshark 1.2.7

    Pros

    While Wireshark has an intuitive, easy-to-read log interface, it also has plenty of capacity for complex searches and in-depth packet analysis. It uses the standard pcap file, so it can export to and import data from other applications with ease.

    Cons

    Copy-paste has never been implemented quite right, other programs have better application-specific filters and parsers (although the ability to export pcap files makes this fairly irrelevant).

    Summary

    Wireshark in all its incarnations is one of the oldest and most widely-used packet-sniffers available. It is a tool that every network and security administrator should have on-hand. Its also a great starting place for people studying networks to get a better grasp of what packets traverse certain parts of a network, and why.

    "Excellent tool for finding /creating Wireless Networks."

    October 23, 2009  |   By Herman8r

    Version: Wireshark 1.2.2

    Pros

    Through 3 moves in 14 months, Wireshark helped me locate available networks in each neighborhood. Running multiple connections is easier and more accurate with Wireshark's easily read interface.Searches results can be saved, and printed out as well.

    Cons

    Once I was familiar with the software, I found No Faults with it.

    Summary

    A wonderful Free tool that's simple to read and configure, and I'm sure the Pro Version is well worth your money !

    September 8, 2009  |   By vince2000

    Version: Wireshark 1.2.1

    Pros

    It does exactly what it was made to do. capture packets, identify the protocol and you can search on virtually any criteria.

    There isn't much to dislike.

    "Excellent source of networking details."

    March 17, 2009  |   By Ehuggz

    Version: Wireshark 1.1.2

    Pros

    Strong filtering capabilities. Colored conversations easily seperate information. Detailed drilldown capabilities. Now supports wireless traffic as well as wired.

    Cons

    Filtering language is not intuitive.

    Summary

    Free, detailed network traffic breakdown by conversation, traffic type, etc. An invaluable tool when needed. Excellent tool for troubleshooting connection issues where details are not available from carrier or local network team.
