I've seen several posts about putting a router behind U-verse CG/modem - but they all seem using a single external IP address.
I have a 8 static IP with our service - the bloody U-verse CG/modem is forcing me to have a dedicate hardware interface for each static IP address I want to use - defeating the powerful ability of any decent commercial router or server to be easiiy configured for a single hardware interface to respond to multiple IP address.
Is anyone else on board see these issues too? ... work arounds?
I'm not mad as far as I can tell as these links seem to indicate this is U-verse related:

Thanks. That sums up it well - unfortunately.
Yes I can work around it by having multiple HW firewalls in front of each static IP server / or use use soft firewall (e.g. iptables, ...) or by having virtual machines provide mulitple virtual network interfaces. Also, having both local network subnet and external subnet on same network cable feels wrong but seems to work.
How likely do you think U-verse firmware will be patched to 'fix' this ridiculous warped routing for muitple static IP's. My sense is it may be 'by design'.
