In the paper, specification of computer network simulator is presented. This application is designed for tests of different types of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN). In particular the simulator concentrates on routing protocols simulation including energy consumption model which is needed in development of ad-hoc networks. Ad-hoc networks consist of mobile nodes, which organize themselves dynamically without any centralized administration. Nodes in ad-hoc network can route packets extenting range of data transmission, therefore routing protocol is needed. WSN applications will likely use ad-hoc model as it is very suitable in measurement and control systems. Effective protocols, especially in energy conserving manner, must be developed to be used in those applications. Described simulator is designed to stand as a useful tool for such studies.
