    I have 2 routers, BEFSR41(Wired) and WRT54GS. Somehow, my WRT54GS keeps dropping PPPoE connection to my ADSL modem. At the moment, I'm using the BEFSR41 to connect to the modem. However, I want to make use of QoS on the WRT54GS. How do I setup my network?
    At the moment, it looks like this

    ADSL modem <----> BEFSR41(DHCP server, <-----> WRT54GS( <-----> wired / wireless clients(192.168.1.x)

    The WRT54GS is connected to the BEFSR41 through the LAN port. AFAIK, it needs to be connected at the WAN port for QoS to work. My thought is to have the BEFSR41 just dial the ADSL modem, and route all data to the WAN port of the WRT54GS(DHCP server), which will then do NAT. However, I am not sure about the config of both routers to achieve that. Please advise, thanks.
