QoS problem. Redirecting traffic?

Here's my situation:
I have two routers.
One is a Linksys WRT-54G v2, running tomato.
The other is a cheap G adsl router/modem I got from my ISP.
My Linksys router has QoS set up the way I like it.
The cheapo one doesn't have any QoS whatsoever.
What I need to do is to be able to parse all traffic through My Linksys router so QoS will effect all traffic.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Please note that I wire my Linksys "internet" Port with an Ethernet cable that connects to one of the cheapo routers LAN ports, as the cheapo router connects via ADSL.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is the way my network is set up:

Phone Line --> cheapo router w/ WiFi --> Linksys WRT-54G w/ WiFi

I was thinking this could be done via a gateway setting.
Please help if you can.

If the primary (cheapo) doesn't have QoS, anything you schedule on the Linksys will not go out, as it does not control the gateway.

I need more information on the ISP supplied router.

Is it an aDSL and Router combination device? Likely, if it is, you need to get its user manual and turn it's routing functions OFF to use that portion as a passive switch, and then there will be nothing blocking the control set from the secondary.

If it is a separate device that plugs into an aDSL modem, GET RID OF IT! It is doing nothing for what you want. If your ISP DEMANDS that it be in place, tell them that it is not compatible with your software and you need the Linksys to be the gateway controller, and they will walk you through registering it as the certified router.

That was a long wait for a response -.-
Yes it's an adsl router/modem.(combination device)
I would get rid of it if I could find a standalone modem, but for some reason I can't seem to find ANY.
I could turn the routing functions off, but it provides WiFi as well so I had a hard time convincing everyone to switch, so I was forced to turn it back on.
If anyone could direct to a place where I could get a standalone modem, that would be great.
Thanks.

I responded on September 22, two weeks ago. You're the one who took forever to re-respond! LOL!

As far as it goes... yeah, if you need wireless coming off of the combo box, you are stuck. Otherwise, disable it's routing portion to turn it into a simple modem, and use the better router to handle all network trafficking. No other option.
