There is no cron in m0n0wall.

Check your hardware.

You could try inserting your script via <shellcmd> in config.xml like:
<shellcmd>while : ; do sleep 600 ; check ip ....... ; done</shellcmd>
I haven't tried this, maybe you can do it that way.
Another way customizing m0n0wall is building your own images. You will
need a running FreeBSD-4.10 to do so.
Hope that helps,
