Yes i know how masquerading/NAT works. You seen to have missed my point which is: How can they keep giving away public IPs like that? Wont they run out eventually? Or is IPv6 now the standard in North America? It's all IPv4 down here and my ISP will only give me one (public) IP regardless of how many devices I hook up. NAT is also good from a security point of view with everything going through a central point it makes firewalling and network statistics much easier to manage.

It seams that comcast has numberous class A subnets. That give them a few million ip addresses to go through. I guess they believe that's enough? LoL. BUt I see what you're gettin at.
