Really need to understand your setup here. Is this wi-fi, 3G or what? It sounds like 3G, but if that's the case, don't let them have the dongle would be the easiest solution.

You should be able to. What exactly is the make and model?

you'e got one of these then

You need to password the wifi side of the network, same as you would with any other wireless router. I've not used one of these myself, so don't know how to do it - but it should be easy enough. Call Three's support phone line and they should be able to talk you through it quickly

it appears these are actually pre-set up with a default WPA password which is printed on the device. If your neighbour is logging onto your network, she must at some point have been given this WPA key.
If thats the case, your only option is to change it.
Details of how to log onto the configuration page can be found here:

From there it should be easy.
I don't know how you know its your neighbour who is logging on, but if she its its a good example of why you should keep passwords secret. However the reviews I've read of this device all indicate that the wireless range would make it unlikely a neighbour is guilty.
I'd be more inclined to think your problem is going to be due to background windows (and other) updates running, or maybe your own downloads using up more bandwidth than you realise
