Why don't you use the m0n0wall as the DSL/Cable-Router itself?
If you want to stick to the additional router you can set the router to 
give away DHCP adresses to clients, set the m0n0wall to Dynamic IP so it 
gets all information from your router, and the m0n0wall itself could act 
as a DHCP-server for the lan again.
If so, you would need to set the internal IP of the m0n0wall to another 
subnet than the router runs in.
But using m0n0wall as the router itself is the easiest solution IMHO.
