Not to keep beating this down, but I do not want the users to have to
change a thing on their laptops.  No matter what their IP settings are I
want the monowall to give them access to the Internet IE the wan side.  From
what I understand this can be done by ignoring IP traffic and just using the
MAC address.

Perhaps I should ask this on the FreeBSD site or some other linux site...

In XP, under TCP/IP properties, if you are set for DHCP, you have an
"Alternate configuration" tab allowing you to set a static IP if DHCP is not
found.  However, that doesn't help this guy...
