No matter what IP they pick up, they are still going to need to talk
to the 192.168.1.x network, and that traffic will never make it across
the connection.  What I'd do is renumber every home user that uses
192.168.1.x, or renumber your LAN to some uncommon subnet
(172.16-31.x.x is pretty uncommon compared to 192.168 and 10.)
