Right, but what is it?  If it is on a different subnet, you'll have to
use a different command to enter a default route through an interface,
rather than using an IP.

So it sounds like m0n0wall is trying to use the external IP of the
modem as its default gateway, which appears to not be within the same
subnet as the WAN IP assigned to m0n0wall itself.  Could you just set
up the modem to bridge only?  I don't know anything about PPPoA, but
with PPPoE that's generally the preferred behavior.  There are several
people in the UK on this list who have quite a bit of experience with
PPPoA, maybe one of them will have a better answer.
