I don't thinks that that is possible by default. From my experiences
with DSL (sharing a connection via NAT) broadcast packets don't get

I had a scenario where my private network IP addresses were being
provided via DHCP, but also the DSL side of the network was too (by the
telco on the other end). Linux and Windows broadcasts were denied across
the two subnets. If they allowed them then there'd be a dhcp nightmare.

But, saying that, a more detailed description of what you are trying to
achieve would be useful.
