Hi, i understand your configuration in this way:
0.0.0.0--ADSL-line---151.25.23.221/29-WAN-Netgear-LAN-144.125.0.110/?
-151.25.23.221/29-WAN-M0n0-LAN-144.125.0.110/?

There are some errors.
1. On ADSL-side 151.25.23.221/29 (255.255.255.248) with gateway
151.25.23.254 is not possible, subnet must be 255.255.255.192 (/26)
2. Why do you use as internal net the 144.125.0.0/16 (Atlanta University
Center, Inc.)
3. And the connection between Netgear and M0n0 is wrong.

possible solutions:
1. let the Netgear act as bridge (only modem, no IP on LAN and WAN) and
use the existing m0n0-configuration, but use the external DNS-servers.
2. let the M0n0wall act as bridge and use the existing
Netgear-configuration.
3. Use a new subnet between Netgear and Monowall, eg. 192.168.0.1/24

I prefer the solution nr.1, because it is the "standard" one of a
firewall. But all solutions require a minimal knowledge of routing,
address-ranges etc.

bye
Christoph
