Does anyone have experience with shareware/freeware tools similar to wireshark. I am looking at a tool that is simple to use by application teams as they are doing development (mostly .NET) that can highlight WAN performance issues early on. It should be simple to understand and interpret by this group. Please let me know if anyone has anything they can recommend. Again this is a Microsoft specific environment so I need something that could work on Windows. Thanks a bunch

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Microsoft’s <a href=”http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=18b1d59d-f4d8-4213-8d17-2f6dde7d7aac&DisplayLang=en”>Network Monitor 3.1</a> is free. Since this is .NET stuff, the Microsoft parsers would likely be able to detect problems easier than Wireshark. I usually do my packet captures in Network Monitor and then analyze in Wireshark with the nice tools it has.
