The DSL modem has a private IP address.  Basically its
setup screen (which you use telnet to connect to) was
very similar to a router's setup utility.  In order to
correct the connection problems I mentioned, a Sprint
tech had me bridge the modem to my router (I think
that's the proper terminology).  So it now no longer
has its own private IP address.
