Awesome number of errors on the WAN eh... But i dare say thats due to us 
being on a wireless internet connection. (Trango broadband wireless) The 
wireless client adapter feeds directly into the WAN of my monowall, 
which has its IP staticly set.

I'll get to testing ram and cpu now. Oh man i dont feel like doing that 
now.. i'll have to disconnect from my internet drip! *cry :P

Sounds like fun! And what about 3 days down the track with multiple 
reboots on monowall AND clients?

Thanks again for your help!
