I came across the tool over the following tweet and didn’t want to withhold the information from you. Maybe someone can do something with it. 

Clumsy for Networktests

Clumsy allows (by using the WinDivert library) to stop network packets. The tool intercepts the packets, delays or falsifies the packets on request and then sends them on. Whether you want to detect strange errors related to a broken network or evaluate your application on bad connections, Clumsy will prove useful. The tool runs on Windows and does not need to be installed. More details can be found on this page.
