    I could have sworn quite some time ago that I saw a version of WRT54G firmware that allowed you to manage multiple public IP addresses through the web interface.

    I can't seem to find it now. Am I imagining things?

    Not possible

    It is not possible to have to internet ip address on one router as there is only one internet or WAN port on the router.

    You can have a multiple public ip addresses on the computer if you connect the router and computer on the LAN port and make it a switch.

    It's possible. The WAN port can respond to more than one IP address.

    I know I can do this with non-Linksys firmware, but I'm looking for a package that has this ability with a corresponding web interface. I thought I saw one before, but maybe I'm mistaken.

    Essentially, I've got 5 public IP addresses I want to map to different machines on the inside network (all while retaining some firewall capabilities).

    I've got an old Netopia 9100 that does this now, but the hardware is starting to flake out and needs replacing. I was hoping using my WRT54G with after-market firmware would be an easy fix....and one less gadget to break in my network.

    Yes, this IS possible. There is a Belkin Wireless G router (the 54Mb version for sure, and *maybe* the 125 version but I don't know that for sure...) allows you to add multiple IP addresses and map those to your internal network.

    I wish other routers had this functionality, too.

    They do, Cisco for instance. That kind of facility is more a requirement of a business class router rather than a simple home gateway ;)
