Overall Satisfaction with Wireshark

We have been using Wireshark for a few years, it allows us to take a deep view of out network and analyze what is being sent and received. We use it a lot when trying to trouble shoot connections that aren't acting how they are programmed to work. It also lets us troubleshoot our microwave network when our routers aren't working properly.

Pros

  • Inspection of protocols
  • Analysis of packets
  • Live data

Cons

  • More user friendly
  • A more detailed explanation of certain packets
  • Live Data Capture
  • Multi platform
  • Deep inspection
  • Has Saved us time
  • Makes troubleshooting easier
  • Easy to use
Wireshark has a more friendly user interface and easy to use. It can be installed on many operating systems and can be used in combination with Kali Linux. What I like about Wireshark is the live data view that is so helpful when trying to troubleshoot that pin points to the problem.

Yes

Yes

Did Wireshark live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of Wireshark go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Wireshark again?

Yes

On different occasions we have had issues with our Microwave router Gui, where it can ping the ip but can't access the web interface. We used Wireshark to see the type of traffic that is being sent and received that allows us to eliminate certain problems and narrow down to the solution.
