Block outgoing traffic through router?

This may be a weird question, but I have a Netgear MR814 4-port router in my room. One of my roommates is constantly uploading or downloading something and it's bugging me as Comcast has a upload/download quota. Is there anyway I can spy on his bandwidth and see what he is doing? I'd also like to disrupt his connection in intervals. For example, every 45 seconds he would lose connection and reconnect after 60 seconds.

Thanks for the help

some routers have port replicating or monitoring functions. All traffic going/coming through a port is duplicated to another... that's what you need but I don't know if your equipement can do it.
If it can't, use 2 nic in bridge mode and insert your machine between the router and your roomate's pc... thus you'll be able to sniff and do whatever you want with his connection.

I've looked at your router's datasheet and there's smtg called Port Range Forwarding, maybe that's it...

I would go into the wireless card access setup and add in the mac addresses for your wireless card(s) that you want to go, the router will not allow any others. In the downloaded reference manual, it's under "Restricting Wireless Access by MAC Address"
