I just installed m0n0wall for the first time. Im having some
troubles...I gave up.
I can't ping beyond m0n0wall. I have followed handbooks troubleshooting
flowchart on section 19.5. I can ping LAN IP and WAN IP. However I have
been unable to ping the WAN gateway. Section 19.5.4 reads:
"19.5.4. Ping m0n0wall's WAN's gateway IP
On the Status -> Interfaces page, make note of m0n0wall's WAN
default gateway IP. Try to ping it from your client machine."
However, there is not WAN Default Gateway field (row) on the WAN
interface status page. I do get IP, mask and DNSes from ISP In an
archived message, sai <sonicsai at gmail dot com>, wrote:
"<...>if you take a look at http://m0n0ip/status_interfaces.php
find out if you have an ip address from your isp. If you have no IP
address then reboot your modem and then your firewall.
This pge will also give you the WAN gateway ip.
Try to ping the gateway from the m0n0 webgui<..>
Again, Im not getting the WAN Gateway field on the status page. I
rebooted modem and m0n0 several times with no luck.
The following is the WAN DHCP client for my current router (freesco) on
CLASSID='Linux 2.0.39 i?86'
This is the log from m0n0wall:

From what I understand, the ISP is giving the gateway ("dhclient: New
Routers: 188.8.131.52") but for some reason m0n0 is not using it. I do
notice, m0n0 is receiving response from a different DHCP
server...doesn't make sense. I gave up, booted with the former router
software and I'm up again. :-S
Any ideas? Tips?
