Network Redesign

I'm starting to work on a network redesign and wanted to get some additional eyes on this.  Here is a basic image of what I'd like to do at the top level:


A DSL modem with a public IP of .206 (located near the bottom of the image) connects to a firewall, which has LAN ports that servers with public IPs connect to.  The modem only has 1 LAN port, so the firewall/LAN option i think is a good option.  I only have the IPs of 201-205 to use, so I'd like to not use one for the firewall if possible, but don't see how else to make it work.  Any suggestions?

RE: Network Redesign

You need to configure your firewall as NAT mode, or you need to do NATting, and no need to assign public IPs on your servers.
