If you're using BlueYonder, you get a real IP address (although it's
supposed to be allocated dynamically). The 192.168.100.x range is used by
the modem internally, as a fallback if it can not talk to the other end of
the cable line. The modem is supposed to get two real IP addresses from
the other, one for itself, and the other for you. It then offers the one
for you to you by DHCP.
The interface on my FreeBSD gateway here is sis0 (cheap-o network card from
PC World <gack>), and with
everything works fine.
