Ethereal will do what you want.  It will display the entire layer-three header in hex, which you can convert to binary and with the TCP/IP RFC as reference, you can identify the value of every field in the header.

Ethereal is a great freeware for that. It's development have ceased though so I would recommend to download WireShark which is successor of the product. You can find it here: http://www.wireshark.org/download.html.
