%description
-Wireshark is a free network protocol analyzer for Unix and Windows. It
-allows you to examine data from a live network or from a capture file
-on disk. You can interactively browse the capture data, viewing summary
-and detail information for each packet. Wireshark has several powerful
-features, including a rich display filter language and the ability to
-view the reconstructed stream of a TCP session.
+Wireshark allows you to examine protocol data stored in files or as it is
+captured from wired or wireless (WiFi or Bluetooth) networks, USB devices,
+and many other sources. It supports dozens of protocol capture file formats
+and understands more than a thousand protocols.
+
+It has many powerful features including a rich display filter language
+and the ability to reassemble multiple protocol packets in order to, for
+example, view a complete TCP stream, save the contents of a file which was
+transferred over HTTP or CIFS, or play back an RTP audio stream.
