Hmm. Interesting question. But it seems to me that this box is actually
routing, not bridging or doing a proxy ARP. It appears to support RIP, so I
would guess that it does actually route.

Well, we got this hardware from Eircom.
Personally, my preference was to have a Linux (or BSD) box connected to a
basic ADSL modem, that could then do routing and firewalling as needed. But
we have a good firewall already and it worked out cheaper to buy Eircom's
ADSL router. (Seriously!)
