First some assumptions.  

Ok, you have:

internet --- router ----- m0n0wall ------  LAN

And also off of m0n0wall, an OPT, and a DMZ.  

Your PC is on the LAN.  Your default gateway is m0n0wall's LAN IP.  
You don't need any static routes at all, since m0n0wall is directly
connected to all networks.  TTL expired suggests a routing loop

Take out your static routes, and confirm or deny my assumptions above.
 If everything I said is true, it'll all work.
