thx for your reply. The generic PC image didn't work at all on the
WRAP (maybe just because the WRAP has no keyboard, but I didn't
So I recompiled the 4.10 kernel with WRAP config + patches applied.
The WRAP manual and the mailing list archives showed some additional
things to take care of:
A change in sys/dev/ata/ata-pci.c to prevent waiting for ATA device
(see mailing list archive) and another one in
sys/i386/i386/vm_machdep.c to make reboots work (see wrap1c.pdf).
Now with Realtek support compiled into the kernel (device rl), the
mini pci nic with its RTL8139 is detected correctly and can be set up
as an optional NIC (OPT1/2).
A major problem (maybe a bug in m0n0wall) was the config file. After

interface, things didn't work - I wasn't even able to enter the Web
GUI again. I had to reboot, restore factory defaults, setup the
interfaces again, reboot, set correct LAN IP, enter Web-GUI and
re-enter all my setup manually.
