    Can I limit the bandwidth usage of a 360?

    I got my little brother a 360 for xmas with xbox gold and netflix subscription.
    Now all he does is watch netflix.
    Our awful DSL connection's bandwidth is being eaten up by all the streaming movies and I can't even play Quake or CS without constant ping spikes from 30-150 every couple seconds.

    Is there any way I can limit the bandwidth or download speed of the xbox so that I can still game while he's watching streaming videos? I know this would make it a longer buffer time for him, but he can deal with it because I can't play ANYTHING right now.
    I'm bad @ BC2 Lulz.

    Okay, so the 360 is the only thing on my network that is using wireless and is not hardwired into the router.. if I lower the maximum connection rate for the wireless from 54mbps to say...24mbps would that do the trick?
