Expanding on this ... I have

DSL -- m0n0wall -- network switch --- computers, linksys router

I use the wireless router as an access point only. In the linksys config
I can disable the WAN interface and then just gave the router a static
ip. In this configuration its just a wireless access point.

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.
