WildPackets Omnipeek Personal is a free network monitoring tool for personal use. The .Net 2.0 tool has many features which most free packet sniffers/packet analyzers lack, especially when it comes to statistical analysis and visualization. Omnipeek is even better than Ethereal/Wireshark.

However, the personal version of Omnipeek has two limitations compared to the commercial version. It only supports one network interface and has a 25 node limit on Flows. Flows are conversations between two nodes (devices having a network address). Basically, this means that you need the commercial version to analyze the network traffic of a bigger network.
