You can look at tools like NS2/NS3 or OMNet++, but these are not going to
do what you want out of the box, they are a framework for network
simulation but you'll have to program them to do what you want, they are
more used in academic settings.

If you want a nice interface you are kind of stuck right now with the
commercial offerings from Cariden, OpNet, WANDL (now Juniper), and Aria
Networks.  Most of those packages are extensible via scripting if you want
to do additional things.
