Feedback:

I found this article interesting, however, I was able to get this to work by only adding a static route to my cable modem. With no additional interfaces or nating I just added a route "192.168.100.1/32" to my WAN interface and it worked. I am running 2.5.1-RELEASE and my cable modem is bridged providing my WAN interface my public IP from my ISP.
