"the problem seems to be related to your roommate's internet activities.

you may seek an arrangement involving 'Traffic Shaping' to share the internet connection in a fair and acceptable manner.

This can be achieved with software on the client computers (e.g. Traffic Shaper XP in your case, i don't know of any equivalent for Mac OS X) or with a router that supports bandwidth shaping via the firmware (e.g. any router that supports DD-WRT or Tomato)."
