Have you tried looking into your logs?  Is it timing out when you have 
your cable modem plugged in?  No authentication of any sort im guessing 
as well?  Also take a look at http://yourmonowall/exec.php , try a: 
ifconfig , see what the interface is set at.

house receive one, as does the Linksys wireless router (that I am relegating to an access point once
this is working).  The NICs for the LAN and WAN side are the same model, and I can connect on the
LAN side, so I don't think that's the issue.  I'm also using the same network cable for all of the
connections to rule out a faulty cable.
