Personally I've never been able to get M0n0wall working correctly with the
Speedtouch DHCP Spoofing method. Everytime I boot the machine on that connection,
I have to manually (via exec.php) add a default gw 10.0.0.138 (out of box IP of
the Speedtouch) to get it working. It's something I can live with on that
connection, but frankly I think a default route outside the scope of any available
network has to be considered as bad networking practices.
