5 IP's on one line is likely to be an ATM/DSL circuit.

You have a gateway at the isp and then 5 allocated IP's at your side 
using a switch or router at your side. You also have a broadcast IP and 
a Net IP to configure.

If you get this I can give you a how to that worked here at our noc. The 
usual confic gives you 768/768 speed. We find this works ok.

email me at noc at if you need a "how to" so you'll know what you 
are getting into.
