Due to reasons outside my control, I have a situation where I need to put a router side-by-side another router. My router is a 951g, the other is a cisco pix used for DHCP and the local network. The other router is completely outside my control.
The issue, with the other router hooked to the same cable modem (modem has a built in switch and 5 public IP addresses) I cannot QoS it and I have a VoIP pbx on site.
So, I'm thinking that if I created a bridge with the WAN+Ether5, assign my public IP to the bridge and plug the other router into Ether5 so they could assign another public IP then I could at least get their link in my control.
Here is the catch, how to heck could I apply a queue to traffic coming in that interface? Can I?
I realize there are other ways around this, but they all seem out of reach. 1) The provider for the cisco wont let me 1:1 NAT a public IP to their box. 2) they have only 4Mbps upload and there are file transfers across the VPN so I'm sure it will trash my SIP trunks, 3) other vendor is unable to do QoS on their router.
