There may be Bandwidth throttling Via the set-up page via browser for the d-link router. As i have not used d-link refer to your user guide to find the IP and login details for the D-link setup page. The IP is normally the Default Gateway. Guide will be available on the d-link site. Bandwidth throttling allows you to set a max figure kbps to a certain NAT IP(your housemate Ip). Sorry I can not give any more details at this point.

I have quite a few computers running through my account on a D-Link RTA1025W wireless modem/router and insist that each user runs BITMETER II to keep track of their own use, and anyone who goes over their limit picks up the excess charges. If it is your account, lay down the rules and if they refuse to comply then cut them off. I use access control to only allow MAC addresses that I know.

I am not aware of any B/W throttling capability on mine.

When we had dialup, we had an agreed time schedule that meant everyone had a fair crack.
