It depends on your wireless router, many will allow you to create a 'guest account' that you can then limit in whatever way you want. Just google 'throttle guest wifi'

There's a ton of information on the subject.
If your router doesn't support it, I don't know of any other way though.

U can enable ICS and install a Net Limiter software on your pc to limit the outgoing connection speed.
but the main consequence is....u need to keep your computer on to limit.

Internet Connection Sharing
To enable ICS modem should be bridge mode, so can u can dial a connection from your computer. Now when u enable share on that dial-up connection, your pc will be on ICS. It will share Internet connection with other pc's.
Then your pc will become a main computer and others will be a client. When your pc will be disconnected other pc's or laptop will loose internet connection.
So you are sharing a internet connection, u can install Net Limiter software where u can limit the outgoing connection speed.

For more information on ICS, I think starting with the windows Help and Support is the best way. Simply enter ICS in the search box.

Note: You might found somewhere while searching that u need two LAN interface in your pc i.e, one for incoming and another for outgoing. But let me tell u, u dont need that, this can be done on a single lan port. Your wireless router will automatically start sharing when u enable ICS.

So first start with Help & Support and feel free to ask if u stuck anywhere.
Remember, your router should be in a bridge mode.
