I think it's not easy with m0n0wall(not m0n0wall specific): that would
mean changing the WAN IP to something in the 192.168.1.0/24 range...
Of course, it's always *possible*, but you'll lose the Internet
connection during that time. Maybe connecting a hub between the modem
and m0n0wall with both WAN (for PPPoE) and OPT interfaces (to access the
modem GUI) in parallel may work but I'm not even sure.
Question: why access the modem? What to configure? When it's up and
running, you shouldn't have to access it anymore.
