How to configure 2Wire 1701 with static public IPs

Just got a range of public static IPs to host my website in house and do mail. Having trouble though to get the IPs to be available on the LAN thru NAT. I got xxx.xxx.xxx.160/ network DG is .166 BCAS .167 so my available range is 161-165.

So I go to to configure things and I go then to Local Network -> Configure and selected the box to Bridge the Network and have Broadband Network:        xxx.xxx.xxx.166/ and for SM Above in Private network I have the selected.

In Local Network -> Address Allocation I have the local IP address of one of the servers and I have assigned to xxx.xxx.xxx.163, but when I got the to server and in IE type whatismyip.net it still shows the DG xxx.xxx.xxx.166 not the .163. I also can only ping .166 from outside my entire network

What is correct way to configure this router?

hmm, maybe a little bit... I prefer to have all the servers and desktops inside LAN to use NAT, I don't want to assign the public IP to the server direct, I want lets says to use xxx.xxx.xxx.163 to use xxx.xxx.xxx.164

and so on
