I haven't tried this with Bell/Aliant but one option might be for you 
to put the Actiontec into transparent bridging mode and then drive the 
PPPoE from another router or server where you want the public IP to be 
located. This basically turns the actiontec into a dumb media converter 
and it won't get to interfere with anything anymore.

If the ationtec doesn't support jumbo ethernet frames you will have a 
slightly reduced MTU due to the extra framing.. this can be mitigated by 
using tcp mss clamping. On the plus side you can host the public IP on 
your mail server or wherever it was previously located when you used
