Yup, you're right. I'm planning to upgrade the cpu & memory & get a second
nic, then i'll setup NAT or something with my windows machines behind the
bsd box.

Thanks :)

This is just going to happen again when your computers renew an IP
address.  The reason your ISP is giving you more then 1 subnet is
because they added a new block of IP addresses to the router on the
ISP side and had to setup new routing and subnet masks to do this.
It would be far better for you to route your own private network
especially if you are sharing any resources with your computers.  You
are not secure right now from hackers!
