Is there any such feature in the manual for your router? If not, there probably isn't.

I'd suggest just blocking his MAC address. A router is a lot more likely to support that, and he is abusing your hospitality.

Again, how to do that depends on how its manual says to do it. They're not all the same.

The service you would like is called QoS, and it should exist on netgear wireless routers (depends on the model etc. check on router page).
Setup it by mac and limit the sucker Smilie

If you don't have it, and you are using LAN cable, you can limit wireless transfer rate to 1MBIT.

Hope that helps
