Your problem is that all of your address ranges overlap. For a router
to work properly they need to be in different subnets.
10.0.0.134/24 and 10.0.0.137/24 for LAN and OPT1 are in the same range.
You could solve this by bridging LAN and OPT1 and enabling the filtered
bridge so you can restrict traffic flowing between them.
However, your WAN address 10.1.0.137/8 encompasses the above addresses
so you are doomed to failure.
You need to resolve these addressing issues and then you should find
things start to work. If you're unable to change your WAN address range
then look at using the other RFC1918 address ranges for LAN and OPT1
(192.168/16 and 172.16/12).
