Take a look at http://genericgamedev.com/tutorials/lidgren-network-an-introduction-to-networking-in-csharp-games/ for a relatively straightforward but lower level library. For a powerful high level option, you can look at RakNet: http://www.jenkinssoftware.com/features.html

I struggled with Raknet for a few hours just trying to get it building. At the suggestion of a friend I ditched it in favour of Lidgren. It was easy to use and I was up and running with simple client/server comms in no time, so I'd definitely recommend Lidgren over Raknet. I recently discovered that Lidgren has a nuget package which makes getting access to it even easier than the github way if you don't need the source code.
