    I have two WRT54G, both running Tomato Version 1.27 - let's call them ssidA and ssidB for now. :tongue:

    I have ssidA plugged into my cable modem and everything is running fast and tight. My first goal is to make ssidB a public hotspot for my neighbors/visitors/roommates but with very limited bandwidth. (leaving plenty for me on ssidA)

    So my first two questions:
    Can I just plug in ssidB to the back of ssidA to connect it to the internet?
    How do I throttle the bandwidth on ssidB? (I don't think throttle is the technical term, but you know what I mean)

    More questions to come! TIA

    Yes, you can do it.
    Before plug wan-port of router B into network hub of router A you need change settings in router B - adress of router from to other one. for example, and address space for dhcp from to
    After this when you plug cable from wan-port of router B into hub of router A all should work correctly.

    Don't forget ask here how to tune up QoS and bandwidth control.
