I think this is a silly question but i'm asking anyway..

We have a firewall behind an ISP's router that we would like to swap from transparent mode to bridge mode for various reasons. Because this connection has a range of IP addresses, if the firewall was put in bridged mode, could it still 'see' all other IP addresses  and forward them on if the necessary port/address forwarding is in place?
