Set it up like this:
Provider DSL-Line-----------wan/old router/lan------WAN/m0n0/OPT1------Clients

At the m0n0 bridge OPT1 to WAN and enable filtering bridge at System>Advanced. You need an unused
LAN interface in your box as you can't bride LAN to WAN (designlimitation). Add firewall rules to
your WAN and OPT1 to allow all traffic. For the WAN IP choose a free IP of your local subnet. You
then can do the administration via the m0n0s WAN IP. Make sure all clients are behind the m0n0, so
all traffic gets shaped. This way the m0n0 only does traffic shaping and is besides of this
