Note that this page

   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethereal_%28software%29

redirects to the Wikipedia Wireshark page.

I don't know what's up with the Ethereal.com web pages (maybe Combs'
old employer still controls those pages or something?), but most of
the evidence does appear to point to Wireshark as the new live
project. If anyone can say for sure what's going on, please let us
know. Right now, our FAQ refers to Wireshark; we could update it to
simply describe the controversy, but that would seem like a losing
situation for users who just need a recommendation for a tool.
