    Let's say I have 3 routers to work with.

    A = Cisco 2821 Router <-- handles voice and DHCP
    B = Toastman 7633.3 on WRT54GL
    C = Cisco ASA 5505 <--Internet and VPN

    Router C is connected to the internet and is performing all the stuff a good Cisco firewall does. However it is not capable is URL filtering from within the box and I do not have QOS enabled on router C so I am not sure if the monitoring section of router C will allow me to help shape QOS for our environment.

    Router A does the DHCP assigning but does not do NAT translation, router C does.

    Can I place router B in between router A and router C and be able to use QOS without enabling DHCP on router B. Router A would connect it's WAN port to a LAN port on router B and router B's WAN port to the LAN port of C. Can the tomato router be configured so that already DHCP'ed devices can pass through it onto router C but still take advantage of the QOS capabilities of tomato.

    Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
