	When bridging, both interfaces cannot be connected to the same
switch.  Matter of fact, at any point no two m0n0wall interfaces can be
connected to the same switch.

	So you are trying for something like:

[ LAN ] -- [ router ] -- [ m0n0wall ] -- [ WAN ]

?  Sounds like removing the router and letting m0n0wall route on its own might
be best?  Otherwise the WAN IP of the router must be an internal IP
address and m0n0wall would have:

LAN IP - same subnet as WAN IP of router
WAN IP - from ISP
