I have now said good riddance to Bigpond, however I used the Alcatel modem with IPCop 1.3 
initially with Bigpond, and then with Internode until that modem was melted by lightning. I now 
use a D-link.

Anyway, my setup was two network cards in the old Ip-Cop box, the one on the Green 
network ( eth0 -the home network) was given an IP of in line with the internal 
IP range using 192.168.0.x  as far as the Red Card (eth1 - the internet side) I set that to use 
DHCP and connected the modem to it. This worked OK.

In setting up internal PC's I simply used the Green card IP as the Gateway.
