Limiting bandwidth used


I'm sharing an ADSL connection with my landlord, and
need my Debian box (running etch) to cap the bandwidth
use (just its own use, it's not acting as a router).

Is there any way to do this that doesn't involve
setting up a massively complex traffic shaper, tons of
iptables rules etc etc.? I'm used to doing this with
netlimiter on Windows and the only solutions for linux
when I've searched for it I go "What the f...?" over.
All I want is to be able to say "Use max 1500kb/s down
and 150kb/s up on anything outside 10.0.0.*". I really
don't see how that can be so difficult.
