Sure, I could get a 2nd IP if I get a 2nd account and modem for another 
$50/month.  Wii games aren't THAT important to me.  ;-)  My son is the 
one who is complaining, and frankly, unless a 7 year old can get a job 
and make $50/month, that ain't happening!  :-)

But seriously, no, I can not get a 2nd IP.  I've been down that road 
before for other purposes and the only way is to upgrade my service to a 
business account, or just get 2 modems and 2 accounts.

I'm afraid my son is going to complain until I replace the m0n0wall with 
the POS Linksys that works for his purposes.  Being 7, he of course can 
not understand the benefits of one router over another, especially if it 
doesn't work as he wants it.
