when you bridge virtual hosts to a LAN, they appear just like they are 
real machines plugged into the same LAN.  they'll each get their own IP 
from the ADSL router's DHCP.

why is this a problem?  are you not allowed to plug in multiple systems?

as I previously explained, if you create a separate subnet for your VMs, 
you'll need to route them, and ALL the hosts on the LAN including the 
ADSL internet gateway will need to know this route or they (and the 
internet) wont work for those VMs.   alternately, you use NAT, and then 
your VM's aren't externally visible, but they can connect out to the 
internet (which will appear to your router like your host system is 
doing the connections)
