Routing a subnet

    I'm wondering if _anyone_ can help...
    I've contacted linksys support, and got _nothing_
    I have a WAG54G, and an 8 IP subnet from my ISP.
    I _know_ there is nothing wrong with the physical link back to the ISP, as I've had it running quite merrily before on both a Zoom X5 modem/router, and a D-Link D804GT.
    I bought the WAG54G on the advice of a 'friend', however I've had nothing but trouble since.
    For a start, the linksys won't let me assign the same IP to the internal network card as the PPP device gets allocated by the ISP (no biggy!).
    Then, I get _exactly_ 30 seconds of connected time before the WAG54G disconnects the DSL line. During those 30 seconds, all 8 IP's work fine.
    I know there is no issue with the ISP, as I can swap the linksys out, and presto, _any_ other router works.
    I've tried firmwares 1.7, 2.1 and 2.3, _all_ exhibit this behaviour.
    If I leave the router in nat'ed mode (ie it's on, it works fine, although that kind of defeats the point of having an 8 IP subnet...)
    I'm getting close to seeing what happens when the linksys is introduced to my blender...
