Speed and latency test environment

I need to set up a physical test environment so we can test the effects of different connection speeds and latencies. I have a two workstation network printers and a network scanner. Can anyone suggest the best way to go about setting this up?

Use a level 2+ or a level 3 switch and use the switch to define the bandwidth allowed on each port.  Check the product specifications to ensure it allows you to define the bandwidth and other parameters you want by port. I know NetGear (others as well I'm assuming) make economical 16 port models that can do this.
