[lug] DSL static IP question

Greetings all,

I thought I'd ask some where where people know what's going on and
respond, rather than the "24 hour" turnaround USWest help dept.

Here's my question.

I got a block of static IP numbers from US West and am trying to figure out one
thing.  They gave me a set that they defined as follows:

Of your 8 leased addresses, 3 are reserved for the network and 5 are
for you to assign to individual PCs, routers, or servers.  The 8 
addresses you leased are as follows and will need to be assigned in the 
IP Address field of each clients/hosts TCP/IP stack:

        xx.xxx.x19.184  This is the network identifier.
        xx.xxx.x19.185  User assignable.
        xx.xxx.x19.186  User assignable.
        xx.xxx.x19.187  User assignable.
        xx.xxx.x19.188  User assignable.
        xx.xxx.x19.189  User assignable.
        xx.xxx.x19.190  This is used for routing.
        xx.xxx.x19.191  This address is for broadcasts.

You will need to make the following configuration changes to your TCP/IP 
stacks on the machines that you assign the previous addresses to: Subnet Mask
        xx.xxx.x19.190  Default Gateway   Primary DNS    Secondary DNS

(I added the x's myself)

My question are these:  Is the 190 IP, which is used for routing, the 
address of the DSL modem, or is it the IP of the WAN side?  Also, is 
the modem in bridging mode?

Thanks in advance for any help.
