    Any way to selectively pass traffic to a second gateway based on the device mac or ip ? Ideally, all traffic would be accounted for on the tomato router.

    You can use DNSMasq (the DHCP server built in to Tomato) to assign different gateways to different network devices based on MAC or IP ranges.

    Thanks, that's encouraging. I'm really new to this, but is there a simple guide anywhere on this? Related question. Once the DHCP assigns a second gateway to a MAC/IP, does the traffic no longer go through tomato? Ideally, my traffic to the second gateway would still be countable and loggable on tomato.

    Ok, this works, thank you. However, one remaining question. Is there any way for my Tomato router to pass the traffic through to gateway2 so that I can count it? It seems that once dnsmasq has passed the gateway 2 to a client, then all the traffic bypasses the Tomato router?

    Doh!! I guess I should have read Toastman's full reply. Thank you. To solve this, could I get another tomato flashed router, and send traffic to that from my first tomato router? The second router would use my second gateway, and have DHCP off. The only unknown in my mind is that my "second gateway" is in fact a Verizon 4G router itself that I obviously can't mess with.
