My wireless beach network worked the same way. I had Sprint DSL and
they provided me with a model 645 DSL router. The router was indeed
acting as a router taking the public IP from Sprint and assigning it
to the outside of it's own interface then using 192.168.1.x/24 as the
inside. It took me a while but I managed to set the router up in
bridge mode thus assigning hte public IP directly to the outside
interface of my m0n0wall firewall.
In order to configure the device I googled for "router model name
bridge mode" and eventually I found what I was looking for. What
model DSL router do you have?
