They don't, but you just attach a Linux box and lie your way round this.
I'm using (after a lot of pain and suffering) a ZyXel 643, which is basically a
NATing router, but will route nominated protocols to nominated internal server
addresses. By having one linux box on the inside, and setting this as the
default internal server, you basically dumb the thing down to a modem w/ PPPoE.
The only downside is that if your ISP screw up and don't give you your correct
IP address, your VPN will evaporate and you won't be able to diagnose why.

With a modem no. With a linux box, anything is possible. :-)
