Happened with my simulations too. I ran the simulations for 100 seconds. I left out the 5 seconds at both ends of the simulation and results are consistent.

Any point or hint is extremely > welcomed Thanks for your attention!!! If you like to know the values in a steady state you sould run the simulation for at least several minutes. Especially in the first few seconds you can experience several strange effects. Something I often see is a storm of ARP packets at the beginning of a simulation because all stations start to communicate at about the same time. So, it is sometimes better to discard the results from the first seconds. Daniel. -- Dipl.-Inf.
