Have you tried using ethereal?  It is a packet scan tool, you can access the
"Statistics" options from the top menu and it gives you a wealth of
information.

It's not an active tool, e.g., you can't use it to "prod" your device for
its "come back" responses, but you can turn on your device while capturing
packets and watch what communications do occur.
