The wireshark complete installation will include a cmd line based capture tool, all based upon the libpcap and winpcap libraries, and is 100% compatible with Wireshark.  

Additionally, Wireshark includes text2cap, which can convert an ASCII dump into a compatible format for Wireshark.

Windows itself though, doesn't have anything BUILTIN.  Microsoft Network Monitor is an installable option, which isn't installed by default.  You'll need to run the Windows Setup from Add/Remove Programs and install Netmon.  It's not a full version, but does work.  You can get the newest version from Microsoft, Network Monitor 3.2beta or 3.1 release too, which are both HUGELY better and more capable that the old Netmon 2.  Netmon 2 definitely will output to a compatible format, I do it all the time.
