Here is how I have my DSL/m0n0 connection setup.

DSL <-> m0n0wall <-> Dlink Wireless Router <-> Rest of network: switches,
clients, VoIP, etc.

The m0n0wall handles the PPPoE end and then I have the Dlink wireless router
hooked up into the network using one of the four switch ports.  I do not use
the WAN port on the Dlink at all.

Hope this helps.
