In this paper, an Internet model with one route, one resource, and a nonadaptive user and round-trip continuous distributed delay has been studied. We have shown that a Hopf bifurcation occurs in such a model, yielding a family of periodic orbits bifurcating out from the network equilibrium. A simulation is given to verify the theoretical analysis.
