    Is it possible to run in normal router mode as well as bridging at least one LAN port with the WAN?

    I have a cable modem capable of giving multiple public IP addresses, but only one LAN port.

    One option would be to connect a switch in between and run the router off of the switch as well as any computers I want to have a public IP. But I'd rather not have to get a switch just for that. So I was wondering if there's any way to bridge a LAN port with the LAN so that I may have a server running on a public IP as well as having the rest of the ports behind the router's firewall.
