a few years ago (well, ok... several years ago) I used this tool
to simulate not only network delays, but a variety of conditions:

I see that it is still being maintained:
   "NIST Net version 2.0.12 should run on most versions of Linux 
    available today. It has been tested on 2.0.xx (2.0.27 - 2.0.39), 
    2.2.xx (2.2.5 - 2.2.18), 2.4.xx (2.4.0 - 2.4.18) and 2.6.xx (up
    to around 2.6.11) level kernels."

so it should be easy to install and get it to work.
