I'm trying to setup up a router behind a DSL connection, with static IP. The ISP sent me the following information, and I can't figure out what it means (changed but similar).

For Customer WAN they are providing a class C IP:

Customer WAN
Subnet Mask

Then for the customer LAN they switch to a Class A IP:

Customer LAN
Subnet Mask

I don't get what the external static IP of the router should be, and how any of those default gateways could possible be the local modem....
