If you're just routing to some other router on the same subnet, it's
completely pointless to throw in another router.

Ugly, nasty, terrible network design.  You should toss all this junk
out and start over.  You should never put two different IP subnets on
the same broadcast domain.  If you need two IP subnets you need to use
a 802.1q VLAN capable switch or multiple switches.  In the case of
multiple switches, you need multiple interfaces in m0n0wall.  In the
case of VLAN's, you can setup a 802.1q trunk to your m0n0wall's
interface and have multiple networks with one interface.
