Question One wireless client takes it all ...

So I have a DSL connection. Siemens modem configured to do the job.
The WAN port of a TP-Link wr340gd is connected to the modem. My laptop is connected to 1 of the lan ports. There are 2 guys using the wireless connection. So far so good. Nothing really interesting. A little tricky part coming.
I live in a dorm and we have a cable network. So since I wanted to share my DSL with people who are a bit far away to get good wireless signal I decided to use the local network. I turned off DHCP on the router. Hardcoded the ip address that I get assigned when I am connected to the dorm network with my laptop and plugged one of the lan ports of the router to the local network. The other guys hardcode their ip addresses and mine as a gateway and voila. Ignoring DHCP works just fine. Now they use my DSL. The reason for that - it's cheaper. Legal matters are not interesting for now.
As you might think Wireless users have to hard code their own ip addresses, which should be different than the ones used in the local network to avoid conflicts, or not. I am not sure but I calculated, according to the number of rooms, that ip addresses above ***.244 are free.
Now comes my problem.
I got a new neighbor abusing the wireless connection. For some strange reason he can connect with certain ip addresses only, say ***.250 but not ***.249, I have No problem with either though. Actually he is the only one that have such strange problem. The annoying thing is that when he connects (he decides that he can change the ip he is using, just because!), occasionally, it happens that the internet stops for all others including me but that guy. I look at statistics.
DSL connected!
All people have some minimum count of packet transfer with the router.
The numbers for That One are flying.
If other people are downloading something the internet access does not stop for everybody else! Only when this one is doing it! How come? How does he do that? Unfortunately we do not speak a common language, but he managed to , actually his girlfriend , managed to explain that he wants to use my connection. Yeah so I can't ask there. He's got chinese laptop with chinese windows on it.
It makes no big f sense.

Anyone with opinion on the matter please?
