    I just purchased a WRT54G v8 (CDFG serial) and got it setup. I must say that it is very very impressive over the old el cheapo belkin wireless router I had.

    My issue is this. After being given a copy of backtrack, and seeing how easy it is to hack wireless connections, I want to head anybody who would try to hack my connection off at the pass. My idea is to connect my old belkin router to one of the ethernet ports of the linksys router. I want to leave the belkin as an open connection, so that anyone who fires up a laptop near my house will see 2 connections an will most likely bite for the unencrypted one.

    Now for the fun part, I have the belkin set to a static wan IP address, and it's serving out a different IP range than the linksys (linksys is 192.168 & belkin is 172.16). What I need now is some information on how to configure QoS to traffic shape all data going to the belkin router. I want to limit the bandwidth to say 256k. Is there a way to specify just that ethernet port/IP address/MAC address with a bandwidth limit, without affecting the rest of the devices on my network? Is this possible to do without a custom firmware? If not, does anyone suggest a firmware that will do what I want?

    Are you saying that WPA-PSK/AES with a 20+ character non-dictionary passkey and open authentication has been cracked? If so, do tell where you saw that please.
