You have to go into the router's setup page and see if you have any way of limiting the speed of the connections. Look in the handbook to find out how.

If your roomy is chewing through bandwith with a P2P client, perhaps the advice in this thread will help.

Set MAC Address Filtering so that only your computer can access the router. This will prevent nearby neighbours using it as well. It means your roommate won't be able to access it all, And make sure you've set a password on your router's setup page first.
