Only if they are using lots of bandwidth (like by downloading something). Moving them to another port isn't going to do any good as they will still be in the same network and still will be sharing the bandwidth.

Using QoS (if your router will support) you can throttle back the other users connection, and give yourself priority on WAN traffic. I know for a fact DD-WRT firmware supports this. You can upload the firmware to most SOHO routers.
