How many hosts do you need in the DMZ?

You may have to use .173 on WAN (NATed to LAN - use private IPs here)
and .174 for DMZ interface. That would leave .175 - .178 (4 hosts) for
DMZ. You would need to use .174 for the gateway for the DMZ hosts. i.e.
you would not bridge the DMZ interface - it would be a separate network
(I guess a /26 mask would work??).

You would need to create rules to allow the needed traffic. You should
not have any problem accessing the DMZ hosts.
