However, since 10.0.0.0/8 is class A private network, non routable on the internet, I'm wondering: what is your public ip address here ?My public IP is 18.104.22.168, which is assigned by comcast to the modem via dhcp. The modem in turn then does NAT to a private subnet 10.1.10.x which I connect to my Debian firewall box. I then re-NAT this to 2 different private subnets (192.168.2.x to my DMZ and 192.168.1.x to my internal network).
So your modem is a router. That's not my case, the modem acts as a bridge and the network card of the router behind (my linux box) receives the DHCP lease.
BTW, I did not buy a "static" IP form comcast, but I find the DHCP IP is essentially static (years!) as long as you don't change the MAC of the firewall.
That's interesting, I'll monitor the leases to see if the IP changes over the next few weeks.
Or do you double NAT you packets ? Once on your linux box and then on the comcast router again ?

I plug a Debian computer into one of the network ports on the comcast modem and use this as a firewall and router to my DMZ and internal network.I would like to replace the old linksys we are using in the house with a Debian box connected to the modem (I want netfilter and traffic control). The linksys is getting it's IP in DHCP mode already. From what I see, the lease is 3 days long. I thought a simple "dhclient eth1", the interface where the cable modem is plugged in, would do the job, but it seems that it's refusing to give my Debian a lease... Thanks, Julien
