The only option for controlling traffic is QoS (Quality of Service) but that will only give specific traffic (VoIP, Video and others) a higher priority than other traffic. This will not help you limit bandwidth. Belkin calls this Wireless QoS

Sorry. I do not see a way to limit bandwidth on this router.

Seems that your router can't do that kind of traffic enforcement. Something like a used Netscreen 5GT is cheap (eBay) and can do sophisticated QoS like this (what I use).

Another option is to deploy a linux server and configure it as a router, then do qos/queuing on that.

Else, you'll have to put software on each laptop to limit bandwidth.  But that only works if you are the operator of each laptop.
