Restirct network bandwidth

Hi,

I want to restrict bandwidth on my network at home. We flew past the 20GB limit already and I know before the end of the month the people I live with will pass the limit. So what I want to do is using the Netgear routers I have is throttle the bandwidth. Everyone is on a wireless connection except me since I am wired to it.

Our set up is like this.

Internet

Netgear wireless router

Then everyone just connects to the wireless router. Is it possible using this hardware to restrict bandwidth. we would be fine if I could restrict each user to say 500MB per day. Even better perhaps a way to restrict them just on peak time. I know I am asking a lot but I am willing to learn.
