telstra extranet WAP being allocated private IP

Mostly my configuration (MF823 stick, Dovado Tiny in bridge mode) gets allocated a public IP address when connecting to the network, but on occasions it is issued a private 1.x.x.x address, which obviously breaks access to our internal servers. We then have to go to the site and reset the modem to get a public IP address back.


Is there a reason for this, and is there something I can do/change to avoid it from happening?
