As pointed out before, IPsec in m0n0wall only works with static IP 
addresses at this time. One of the next things I'm going to do as far 
as m0n0wall is concerned is trying to get rid of racoon and replacing 
it with isakmpd (while changing as little in the webGUI as possible and 
maintaining compatibility), which should finally make IPsec with 
dynamic IP addresses possible. isakmpd can negotiate policy, while 
racoon can't - here's what it says in racoon's port description:

Design choice, not a bug:
- racoon negotiate IPsec keys only.  It does not negotiate policy.  
Policy must
   be configured into the kernel separately from racoon.  If you want to
   support roaming clients, you may need to have a mechanism to put 
   for the roaming client after phase 1 finishes.

Be patient...
