 Subject:  WAN & LAN connected to same switch

I am having a problem with sporadic packet loss, and can't figure out
what's causing it.  Does connecting the LAN and WAN ethernet ports to
the same switch cause any ill effects?  Some commercial firewalls use
the same MAC address for all ethernet interfaces by default, so plugging
them in to the same switch/hub causes bad things to happen.
