Yes, someone else mentoined that before and i'd put a switch between the
card an the modem (i don't know about another way to check, the modem
doesn't show the speed/duplex state), both were shown as 100mbit/fullduplex.

Using m0n0wall is the original set up. ;) Anyway, our ISP doesn't check
the MAC address.

I will replace the WAN-side-card tomorrow, maybe this would help. But
i'm glad that it doesn't look like a m0n0wall error.
