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.
