	No, sorry, there is a mini 5 port hub in the middle.

	Does that mean m0n0wall can't be a "true" transparent firewall?

	I appreciate the effort.  Hmm.  And I can't remember if I tried
pinging when I had 1.11 running.  I don't think so because I had to
remove the WAN IP from the config file to get bridging to work as I
recall (on a suggestion from this list).

router - DLink router, with its LAN IP set to
WAN -, gateway
OPT1 - no IP (bridged to WAN)

PCs on OPT1 are and  Traffic from the PCs to the
Internet works fine.
