It depends on which "flavor" of Uverse is in your area and which modem you get. I'm on IPDSLAM with the Moto NVG510 and in addition to offering the "old" DSL style of public IP assignment, it also offers a "routed" mode where the entire block is handed off to your router so it can do as it pleases with the entire /29.
