    Here is the sit.

    I allready have a router routing trafic for local home network but i connected WRT54G and i am hoping to get the QOS working for computers connected to it-that is those that are connbected to internet thorugh WRT54G and another router

    ... is it theoretically even possible?

    i repeat the WRT54G is connected to a network through one of LAN ports not WAN port...

    I believe it would. The sveasoft firmware acts more like a switch than a "dumb" hub. If you can run VLANS without router mode, than the QoS should work.

    Are you saying when a computer on port 1 sends a packet to port 2, it has to go through the CPU and firmware/software so that it can be QoS'd? Wouldn't this cause a big performance hit if trying to sustain 100mbit from port to port?
