NIC Throttling

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have a weird question for you guys. I work as a Silverlight web developer and the application I maintain uses a ton of web services to work with data. It's hard to test performance because I have a gigabit link to our server so web service calls are practically instant. Is there an application or modified NIC drivers or something that would let me manually set upload and download link speeds along with added latency? For example, forcing my network connection to max out at 512 Kb and adding 300 ms ping to simulate horrible broadband.

I have a Dell Precision T3400 workstation with a Broadcom NetXtreme 57xx Gigabit Controller NIC if that helps any.

NetLimiter works really well. There's a free trial if you only need it for a little bit or you could buy it for $30.

Edit: I'm not sure if it can increase your ping though.
