Default Limit Wireless Bandwidth--linksys router

Hi,

I have a roommate who's using 80% of our bandwidth using p2p
networking. Is there a way to limit his bandwidth since he's using a
wireless connection? I see the QOS panel on the router (Linksys wrt54g
V4) allows users to limit bandwidth on wired computers. There is a
section called "Wireless Qos," but the only item under there is a
drop-down menu-- "WMM Support"--which you can enable/disable. I don't
see anywhere where I can limit his bandwidth so I get at least half of
it.

If you upgrade your firmware to the third party dd-wrt special edition
(they sell it for 20 Euros at http://www.dd-wrt.com/shop/catalog/) it
gives you the option to set a maximum bitrate per MAC address.
