I recently setup a similar network for an apartment complex. We had a 48 
port switch with each port tagged as a separate VLAN. We set one port as 
the trunk port and ran it into the monowall's LAN side. The DSL modem 
was setup in bridged mode and went into the WAN side. We also enabled an 
OPT port and used it for wireless access via another switch. Firewall 
rules were added so wireless clients could not access the resident 
network and QoS was put into place using the wizard to throttle users on 
both networks.
