QOS on Toastman without routing?

    The QOS in Tomato is excellent. Is there an easy way to use QOS on an ASUS RT-N16 without routing? I have Verizon FIOS with 30 Mbs/down and 25 Mbs/up.

    I have a network with an existing router which I need to leave in place to deal with the Verizon FIOS on demand and DVR features. However, I want to utilize the terrific QOS capabilities in the current Toastman releases, and I have set up an RT-N16 using Toastman RT 1.28.0495-1 and it is working great.

    In my current setup, i have set up the ASUS wan port on the lan interface of the Verizon router (and the DVR and cable boxes on this lan subnet).

    I'd like to the able to have the ASUS provide QOS without having a separate subnet (no double NAT). Is there a way to do this using VLAN's or another way? I'm pretty familiar with Tomato, but not a scripting guru. There are other situations where this would be useful (for example, behind a dual wan Sonicwall).

    If it is not currently possible, could I suggest this as a future enhancement?

    Please keep up the good work!

    I would like to second the request for this feature. I spent a couple of days trying to get it going and finally ended up changing my DSL modem to bridge mode. But I think there are probably many situations that require this.

    When the WAN type is "Disabled" and "Use WAN port for LAN" is checked, there could be another checkbox that says, "But use WAN port as a WAN port for purposes of QoS"
