How do i block ports on my router?

Specs: Windows 7
Ok, my roomate is hogging the bandwidth on our shared router downloading junk. I'm not sure if he's using a torrent, but just in case he is here is my question:

How do I turn off the ports for torrenting on my qwest pk5000 modem? Is there anything else I can do that would work as well?

My friend reccommended I turn off every port after 9000 or something. How should I do that?

does your router support Qos

Buy a SOHO Router that has a linux based firmware that can be replaced by Tomato firmware. Then using the QoS built into Tomato, you can shut bittorrent right off, or limit the bandwidth to such a small amount your roomie can't up/download anything.

If that's not possible, if you can afford your own internet connection, I'd go that route.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
