Hook the ADSL to the Monowall WAN NIC with a straight-through cable, 
then (for now) use a cross-over cable direct to the PC from Monowall LAN 
NIC.  Don't use the switch while you're debugging.  Make sure all NIC 
lights are on (to show cable connections are ok) if not then first try 
changing the cables in case the ADSL wants a cross-over cable (ADSL 
documentation may indicate which to use too).

The ADSL modem should be set to provide DHCP services to monowall (WAN 
side should show IP from the ADSL modem).  That's the easiest, harder is 
to specify static IP's for both units.  You may need to hook the PC to 
the ADSL to verify its settings.

Monowall should have DHCP service enabled on the LAN side so your PC 
will pick it up.  I'd suggest getting that connection to work first - so 
you have access to the WEB GUI and can see what is going on in there 
(check the "interfaces" menu item to see the status of the NICs and IP 

You may need to specify DNS IP addresses in Monowall to get through your 
ADSL (issue I had before that took a while to figure out).  I could ping 
an IP address number 68.233.?.? but not www.google.com which were the 
same site.

After settings are changed, reboot all the boxes in the order from the 
internet (ADSL, then monowall, then PC).
