    I have problem with QoS using 2 routers

    Router1: Asus RT-N16, SW: Tomato by Shibby (Tomato Firmware 1.28.0000 MIPSR2-102 K26 USB AIO), this router is set up as main router with DHCP enabled, PPPoE enabled, QoS setup…
    Local IP:, netmask:, gateway: (modem)

    Router2: Asus WL-500gP V2, SW: DD-WRT (DD-WRT v24-sp2 (08/07/10) mega - build 14896), set up as Wireless Access Point (I followed this instruction: http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Wireless_Access_Point ) - DHCP disabled, WAN disabled…
    Local IP:, netmask, gateway:

    Routers are connected with UTP in LAN port on both routers.

    Problem: Devices connected to router2’s WiFi are “seen” on router1’s IP Traffic Details under IP – this IP belongs to router2 – all other types of connections are working OK (router1 LAN and WiFi and router2 LAN) – problem is only with router2 WiFi.

    On router1 I have setup DHCP with static leases to all home devices and all of connected devices get correct static IP address, no matter how are they connecting – router1 LAN or WiFi and router2 LAN or WiFi.

    How can I setup router2, that router1 will see all devices on their static IP under IP Traffic Details? – that I will be able to set QoS for each device different.

    Thanks for your help.

    First Name:
    have you checked that there is not a DHCP service for the wireless access point - IF DHCP is turned off on the 2nd router that ALL the IPS should be from router 1

    if you have assigned static IPs to all the devices and then they should be controlled by router 1

    But you say router 1 DHCP is enabled ?
    what range have you assigned
