How can I reduce bandwidth of a computer in LAN?

My neighbors are planning to connect to the internet through my home wi-fi hence I will have to give them the WPA/WPA2 key. But I want to limit their bandwidth so they won't eat it all up.

I am using Buffalo WHR-G125.

The easiest way is to do it in the router software, not all routers have this ability, most people choose a linksys model that can run DD-WRT firmware (software)

Looks like your model supports DD-WRT, do plenty of reading before attempting to flash the firmware on your router, doing it incorrectly or using the wrong firmware can render your router useless.

Check the software already in your router, it may have the features you need already, consult the owners manual on how to view router settings.
