OK, maybe this is just me not understanding some things about networking, but here goes. I switched which ISP I connect to through Qwest DSL so that I could get static addresses so that: 1) I could put my Asterisk PBX server outside of NAT; and 2) so my ISP wouldn't keep changing my IP address for that machine. I got a block of 8 static IP addresses (6 usable) from my ISP today. I have a DSL modem/router from 2-Wire that I have put into "transparent bridging mode" so that it doesn't try to do NAT or routing, which I want my Tomato'd Linksys router do. I'm hoping to buy an Actiontec GT701-WG because I hear that it can have NAT easily turned off and go into transparent bridging mode. I bought and installed a Linksys WRT54GL and installed Tomato so I could use the QOS functions it provides. That should let me prioritize voice packets over everything else. Here's the problem. My ISP says I need to set the Linksys to use PPPoE so that I can get authenticated. Unfortunately, when I choose PPPoE for the WAN protocol, I don't have the option to input my static IP address and DNS mask that enables the block of IP addresses I have. If I choose "Static" from the WAN options, I can put in my static IP for the router and input the netmask of 255.255.255.248 to show the other static IPs I got. I can also then choose a different LAN router address (192.168.0.1) so I can do NAT for my regular machines that don't need a public IP address. In this configuration, however, I can't authenticate myself to my ISP, and, therefore, can't get out to the Net. Here's what I would like: 1. One or more servers with static, public IPs that don't have to use NAT or DHCP but that can be accessed by my NAT-internal machines by DNS name as listed in the Linksys router (instead of having to use just their IP addresses to access them). 2. I would like QOS for my Asterisk server. I need as low of latency as possible, so I'd like to do the whole thing with one router. 3. I don't want my regular computers to be behind two routers (one routing the public IPs, and one handing out NAT-based IPs) because I perceive there would be a big bandwidth decrease and an increase in latency. 4. I want my non-server computers to be behind a firewall with NAT for increased security. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to solve this problem? I'll be so grateful for any suggestions.
