Ah, I see. I thought you'd be using the router to establish the DSL  
connection. In this situation, I'd also see if I could turn the  
wireless router into a wireless bridge and swapping the router and  
the switch around, thus connecting the routers wan port through the  
switch to the lan port of the m0n0 or without a switch directly to an  
extra OPT port of the m0n0 (the latter making it possible to apply  
special fw rules for wireless access). I don't know if you can VPN to  
the m0n0 through another port then the WAN. Others might be of more  
help on that subject.But if that's possible, I think it could be done  
since a bridge isn't visible to the VPN traffic.
