    Is there any 3rd party firmware here that supposrt QoS that can do the followings:

    Let's say there are a bunch of neighbors who want to share a single DSL connection. Is it possible to use the wireless router's QoS to allocate a high percentage of the available bandwidth to one neighbor for a certain number of hours of the day so he can download large files while the others have to wait until their turns? This way, there is no problem with one person hogging the bandwidth most of the time. Better yet, does this firmware also support VLAN so that there is an extra level of security. Come to think of it, how can you have VLAN wirelessly? I mean I can understand VLAN with wired connection because the cable physically plugs into a port and therefore that port can be controlled via IP assignment. But how can this be done with wireless when there are no physical ports? MAC address maybe?
