i can only comment on what i do here in australia......

do you have a permanent/fixed ip address?

when i set up the routers for ppoa vc-mux - i set the lan address on the 
router to the router address given by my isp, the address on the 
interface of the firewall is the fixed ip given by the isp and the 
gateway route is the router ip.....

| INTERNET | <--> | ADSL ROUTER/MODEM | <--> | FIREWALL | <--> | 

                                   ROUTER   FIXED
                                    IP        IP

this is not a bridge....

not sure if this helps, but it is the our most common connection.
