How to simulate WAN (Wide Area Network) in LAN (Local Area Network)

Anyone ever needed to test the web application on a low bandwidth WAN link? But u can’t afford create a link using actual routers and other networking equipment.  I came across such situation where, a web application works fine within the development environment which is a LAN. But when application is deployed in the actual environment which is a WAN with low bandwidths like 128Kbps it becomes very slow to response. My solution was WINEM.
