	Is m0n0wall bridging here?  If you truly mean the ADSL router is
in bridge mode and m0n0wall is providing NAT, m0n0wall will never on its
own feed through itself to WAN since that is a local
address.  It "knows" that is supposed to be on LAN.  You might be able
to add a static route for the ADSL router's IP to force that IP to route
out the WAN interface.  Or else, make your private range something else
(e.g., 192.168.1.x, or 10.0.0.x).

	This may or may not help but there is a checkbox that defaults
to disabling routing of private network traffic to/from WAN.
