What you are saying seems impossible and makes no sense unless the
router is assigning a public IP or is "SIP aware" and knows how to
read the routing data contained inside the SIP packets, and none of
the consumer routers are SIP aware AFAIK, especially not the WRT-54G.

The other option is that the SIP ATA has WAN and LAN ports and the SIP
device is being assigned a public IP.

SIP does not NAT by itself because it can't, because there is no
routing info, it's simply impossible.
