If you have access to the wireless router, you may be able to limit his access via MAC to times or bandwidth. Depends on the equipment and its features.

(you would have to go from your cable modem to your computer then to a switch or similar product)
what is the model of your wireless router? I believe any implementation will require 1 pc to be inbetween your network and your internet. otherwise do what i do and unplug his a$$ when you are about to play.
Also might want to look into packet shaping/ quality of service applications

If your wireless router is anything like my D-Link then you have all the tools necessary right in your router.
You can limit the times he is allowed to be on the net and even the number of hours he can be on at any time. You can also ban certain sires and url's that he goes to if you would like.
