Is it possible to leech bandwidth on my network?
i mean any possible way to use faster internet than anyone on my home network?

and let's say some other larger network may be !

I wouldn't call that "leeching bandwidth." Instead, it looks like you're looking for ways to give your computer's traffic more priority than others. In this case, you should check to see if your router has something for QoS. For example, I've given my T-Mobile BlackBerry Curve 8320 highest priority on the network so that it can use the HotSpot@Home service better.

If you have a WRT54GL, you could flash it with DD-WRT or Tomato (third-party firmware). Do that at your own risk.
