I agree with Jason - something is wrong with your IP Masquerading
configuration. You shouldn't "steal" IP addresses from your provider's
range of IPs, as that will lead to problems for anyone else who
actually tries to use those addresses. Use addresses from the reserved
ranges instead, e.g. 192.168.x.x

Also check the IPCHAINS-HOWTO.

Cheers,
