Try using some bandwidth moniter tool such as DU meter. DU meter warns u if u exceed a certaing amount of data u specify but does control ur internet connection.

Here you go, with 3 such tools:

This one?

It uses like 1.5MB per system, but you have to install it on all computers. It’s password protected (even when you want to de-install it (although I think some one who knows how to use the reg. can by-pass it)) and you can control the bandwidth of EVERY program that is using the network (UP AND DOWN :D ).[/b]

Bandwidth and Usage Limits
Availability

Establish when a user or server is available. For example place a limit on a user to use the Internet during certain hours of the day only. Or create a limit for when web browsing is allowed.
Inbound / Outbound Transfer Rates

Do you have a user using more than his or her share of your bandwidth? Create a transfer rate limit restricting the transfer rate to a reasonable value.
Inbound / Outbound Transfer Quotas

Restrict how much total data your users can transfer in a given time period.
Add limits for users, groups, or servers for bandwidth, transfer quotas or usage. Create any number of the following limits based on day of the week and time of day.  [/b]
