Question 1 - Let me confirm this.... Your m0n0wall box has two NICs, a WAN
and a LAN.  The WAN plugs into a bridging DSL modem with its own IP.

WAN	set by DHCP

You need to tell m0n0wall that the IP subnet of your DSL modem is out the
WAN port, so you need to add a static route for out WAN.

This is not possible in version 1.1x GUI so you will have to either run a
1.2 beta, or use a shell command from 
Something like   "route add -net -dev sis0"
Or whichever NIC your WAN port is set to.

Question 2 - No idea... IPs  are rare here in New Zealand, we pay $400/mo
for one, getting more is even more expensive.

1: Is it possible to configure an alias on my WAN interface ? 
My WAN interface gets an IP from the ISP via DHCP. (Bridging ADSL modem).
But I want to be able to connect to my ADSL modem HTTP interface. The old
situation was that I configured my WAN interface (with shell and stuph) to
have an additional IP address. A private one.

Heres the idea.
ADSL modem uses IP for the HTTP interface on the Ethernet side
of my modem. WAN port on my old firewal got a public address from the ISP
and a predefined alias with the address That way I can connect
from my private network behind the LAN interface (range to with a browser. Sofar I've not found this in m0n0wall. Maybe
there's a config hack ?
