5660, multiple incoming IPs?

I have a SpeedStream 5260 that can be flashed (060-5660-003). In my current setup, I have multiple IPs given to me by my ISP. The IPs are not in a contiguous block. Is there a way to make that work with the 5660 firmware in routed mode?

Thanks.

I'd say no as I have never seen that listed as a feature or seen anyone post that they setup one to have it work.

OK, I guess I'll give up the extra IPs then. If I understand this correctly I have two options:

-Bridged: I use a pppoe client on my machine but that can handle multiple IPs.
-Routed: the modem handles the pppoe and the machine talks to it using straight TCP/IP over ethernet with a private IP address (10.0.0.x, x not being 1 as that's the modem).

I'll try flashing the modem this afternoon.

Thanks.

If the IPs are Sticky IPs via PPPoE then there are a limited number of Routers that will handle that as seen in the FAQ below:

Sorry, I'm a little confused. Mutlitple static IPs are working right now with the stock Speedstream 5260 (which is behaving like a 5660 in bridged mode, right?). Are you saying a single static (sticky?) IP won't work with the 5660 firmware in routed mode?

Edit: which is better for 5660 firmware flashing: 060-5660-003 or 060-5660-401? Is there a difference?

Correct!

Nope. Just that it will not route more than one PPPoE assigned IP in Router Mode. Bridge Mode will function the same as it did as a 5260 even after upgrading the Firmware to 5660 code. Just make sure to use either Firmware release v2.3.0(2), or v2.3.0(6) or v2.3.0(7) and nothing else.

No difference other than a Small Memory unit and a Large Memory unit. There is no chart that tells by part number which is large or small.

I flashed one of the units I have and it's working like a hoot in router mode (1 IP though).

Thanks!

P.S. If you lift the sticker on the 401 unit, you'll find a 003.

edit: the only firmware I could find was 2.3.0(7).
