Only five?  Really?  Our basic residential users get 18 quintillion 
addresses, and business users get 65536 times that many.  Tell them you 
need a few more.  :-)

Seriously, we do indeed provide that many addresses, but that's on a new 
protocol being implemented to avoid the exact problem you're having.

Talk to your sales guy and see if they will assign a "/28" to you, which 
would give you 13 usable addresses for your hosts.  If not, and you have 
a valid need for more space, switch ISPs.
