It differs from a bridge in that *it requires a chunk of routable IP
space to put behind it*, and a route to go there. For the specific
situation I posited, a consumer connection, you can get a static IP,
but you *will
not* get routable space; you have to go to a business connection for
that, at 2-4 times the cost.
That really depends on the ISP, doesn't it?
Sure. If you'd prefer, substitute "large, consumer ISP -- on the order of
Verizon DSL or Road Runner". Both of those have told me that in the past,
and, these days, I don't think they're unrepresentative of the common case.
Knology DOCSIS (residential) here in Huntsville uses a bridged CPE, Arris brand. I like that, as I can use my own
router and handle any NAT if I want.
