Correct, I know who it is because I gave them permission, but how can I limit the bandwidth so they don't suck it al.
 
You can’t typically limit/cap bandwidth, not unless you throttle it at the server itself. But if your router has QoS (Quality of Service) controls, you can prioritize traffic so that the important stuff gets done first. And if the system is otherwise quiet, the downloader can still use all the bandwidth available. Which makes more sense than some artificial cap anyway.
