Yes I am (It is a Zyxel 645 DSL modem).

I have tried adding a little switch on the other side of the router, and
with the 2nd LAN in my PC with a static 192.168.0/24 address out there, I
can access the web and the status page at the same time.

Technically speaking it is not a bug since m0n0 doesn't support 2 IP's on
the WAN interface ... I would just really like it to work (even if it
requires a hack).

> You Could add a static Route.

I tried that - but as far as I can tell it still tries to go to the GW that
the modem gave out.

Interestingly, it I traceroute to, I get a reply from the m0n0
LAN, and then one from the modem/ISP GW.

If I add a static route on WAN to via, and then
traceroute, I get no reply after the m0n0 LAN.

Now if I uncheck the "WAN / Block private networks", the traceroute will go
out via the modem/ISP GW again.

And if I now edit the static route (don't actually change it - just save and
apply), the trace stops at the m0n0 LAN again.

Something fishy is going on :(
