I noticed your similar messages recently to freebsd-ipfw at freebsd.org, 
from youtself and also from Kulamani.

Part of the problem there may have been lack of detail, so it wasn't 
quite clear - to me anyway - what you had and had not tried ..

Whereas in that post you gave a lot more detail in windows-speak that 
someone familiar with using ipfw+dummynet on Windows would appreciate, 
given that is most likely a fairly small number of people.

I know nothing about anything on Windows, but do know that Luigi (cc'd) 
has posted help to other people seeking similar information, and vaguely 
noticed mention of recent problems with getting drivers suitably signed.

Perhaps try asking again on freebsd-ipfw at freebsd.org, providing as much 
detail as possible, and assuming that noone has seen previous posts.

The wipfw Ernie mentions below was earlier than the more recent windows 
ipfw builds, but did contribute to development, IIRC ..

Good luck,
