Thanks, I was wondering if I should use more than one router instead of
trying to make this work in one with multiple eth OPT ports. Forgive my
lack of advanced knowledge in this area of networking, but maybe I'll
learn something here. I have 3 usable IP addresses in the WAN subnet
above of 111.222.333.100-102, all other usable IP's in that subnet are
reserved by the provider and 97 is the gateway. Does that mean two
routers would be setup as this:

Rt1 WAN --> 111.222.333.100/29 GW: 111.222.333.97
    LAN -->
    OPT1--> 444.55.666.1/26

Rt2 WAN --> 111.222.333.101/29 GW: 111.222.333.97
    LAN -->
    OPT1--> 111.222.777.1/27

This is where it gets confusing to me. From my failed experience with
the Sonicwall 2040, this scenario would have worked with 2 Sonicwalls as
my problem with it was one public subnet on its X2 port worked fine
while the second public subnet on X3 did not. But if the above works for
one OPT port, then why not the second public OPT port?
