Probably not too helpful

runescape, the IP you were thinking of - 192.168.0.1 - is the default for many home broadband routers. I'm not sure, but I think it's probably unlikely that he would be able to access his company's router via that IP. And even if it was at that IP, it's probably passworded.

Unless you have admin access to the router, I don't think that there's a way to limit their downloading.

This may be stretching the bounds of proper business etiquitte, but if you could gain local admin access to the offending user's PC, I'm sure that there's registry tweaks that would limit the bandwidth his/her computer used.

Report the issue to the local admin. Since you don't have rights to perform the task under active directory or internet proxy exceptions.
