Netcat comes to mind as a simple connection/traffic generator.  It was 
first made for Unix, but there is a Windows port at 
http://www.vulnwatch.org/netcat/.  One of the many things you can do 
with it is make it connect to a web server and download a page:

C:\netcat>nc -d www.wireshark.org 80 < get-request.txt

Where get-request.txt has "GET /<enter>" in it (since netcat reads the 
data to transmit from stdin).  The -d parameter tells it to fall into 
the background, which also supresses the output.
