i'm using DD-WRT with a DSL-302G as described above, but with a different 
modem i had no choice but to run NAT on the modem. the way it is now, my 
DD-WRT sees a public IP address on the WAN side.

if your modem doesn't handle half-bridge mode then you'll have to work it 
out with an rfc-1918 address on the WAN side of your linksys.
