ISTR the 10.x.x.x ranges are those used by the 'setup' application NTL
give customers to, erm, setup their cable modem. That's what I got,
anyway. When I sneakily ran the setup application on my Mac, but connected
the Linux gateway machine to the cable modem... and ran a sniffer to see
what it did.

It changed ranges to a real one right at the end of the install process.

To quote the installer chap: "I'll give you this pack... <sees setup in
study> Oh. Tell you what: read that <points to booklet> and run that
<points to CD>. You'll know what to do." ;-)
