fvs318 to fvs318 vpn- both behind speedstream 5660 routers, is it possible?

I am trying to setup a vpn to connect two lans. I have a netgear fvs 318 for
each end. one end has static IP. There is currently a speedstream 5660
router at each end. I don't understand how to setup fvs318 router behind the
5660 router. I don't think that the fvs318's will be able to establish a
connection since both ends are sheilded from internet by the 5660's nat
features.
I had in mind to replace 5660 routers with modems, so that the fvs318 would
actually get WAN ip instead of 5660's. Then I would have a clue of what to
do- simply point one vpn router to other one with static IP. But with the
routers in front of the fvs318's , what remote ip will I point the vpn
router to, the 5660 wan IP??
The DSL carrier company will only provide PPPoE connections now, the
existing DSL carrier is PPPoA, so this office absolutely will not talk about
parting with 5660's because someone told them that PPPoE service was a much
inferior service. ( i have not noticed any such problems). Anyway, only
modems now supported are PPPoE. I feel that this is getting too complicated,
I there doesn't seem to be a good, dependable way to do this with vpn
routers behind the nat routers. I want to end up with something reliable,
not just something that I can make work. If the professional opinion is get
rid of nat routers for modems, (which is where I leaning), I would like to
know that. If it is possible to keep nat routers and make this work
reliably, I would like to know that also.

I am doing this behind a Efficient 5861 router and it works fine. In my
case, my providor provided a block of IP's. I configured my 5861 to
forward all traffic for one of the public IP's to the private IP I
assigned my FVS318 (the 5861 does NAT). I configured the FVS318 using
the public IP and the tunnel came right up.

There are a couple of solutions:

1. Is the 5660 in router or Bridge mode? If in router, ask to have it
configured to bridging, you will be able to use the public IP then.

2. If you have to stick with routing mode, have a rule setup that routes all
traffic to an IP and setup your FVS to that IP.

You should be good to go. You may need to check the spec on the 5660 and
make sure that NAT-T is supported.
