Are you sure that the CP actually stops accepting traffic? Could it be
that the Mono box no longer talks to the NHR (Next Hop Router) properly?

-The monowall can ping everything on the wan side and lan side

You could confirm this with some ping troubleshooting. Try pinging your
NHR, ping a client on the LAN side, ping the LAN side of the Mono box
from a client.

With regards to the CP, what happens when you browse somewhere from a
client? Do you get the CP page?

-when you browse it just times out.  You can connect to the admin
interface of the monowall, but it won't grab cp sessions anymore.

Also remember, when using a static IP on the WAN, you must set your DNS
servers also.

-I set everything on the wan exactly (to my knowledge) like the dhcp
