Actually, those promiscuous sub-VLANs are bad news. I got a virus from

The routers of an ISP are sorta DHCP in the sense that the IPs are

series of routers.

No, they'd use private VLANs with the default router in a promiscuous sub-
VLAN. That way they won't have to waste 4 IPs for every customer.
Customers with multiple IPs can be put in community sub-VLANs, if they pay
for it.
Networking works very differently within Service Provider networks. A lot
of it
is technology that makes itself look like other technologies you might be
familiar with, but what is happening behind the scenes is actually
completely
different.

Just thought you might like to know.
