But I think the router could still act a bit like a bridge, passing all IP
traffic between Ethernet and UMTS transparently.  Now I can't disable NAT
and the IP given by UMTS is used by the router, not by my NetBSD box.
(When I was using the Finnish @450 network, the NetBSD box got a public
IP from the modem.)  Well, it seems to work, anyway, so it's not really
a problem.
