Try changing the address to 192.168.0.201 and netmask to 255.255.255.252.
(that's a /30 subnet, with network IP, broadcast IP, host, and FR and
that's it) If that permits you to talk to both the FR and the rest of your
(presumably 192.168.0.0/24??) network, then on the FR change the gateway to
192.168.0.201 and netmask to 255.255.255.252. (also change DNS if
necessary in /etc/resolv.conf on FR)
