Regarding the number 2, I actually uses the 192.168.0.5 as the modem LAN IP
and the m0n0wall LAN is set to 192.168.0.7 with net mask 255.255.0.0 for
both. I tried unchecking the "block private networks", but still cannot get
any IP address when checking on the interface status. But I will try agai,
maybe I missed something.
Ohh.. I will check the opendns.com and will ask my ISP for DNS. But, can I
still put my own internal DNS server as one of the DNS server?
Thank you for your info, I will try them first.

1. When you switched LAN/WAN (cables and monowall settings only, not
swapping cards physically on the motherboard) you could access the Monowall
Gui with the PC on what was previously the WAN? If so then hardware and
cables should be ok.
2. This should be correct as you state. Another test though, if you connect
the pc to the DSL modem (using the same cable you were using to the monowall
WAN from the DSL modem) does the pc get an IP address via the modem's DHCP
server? On the Monowall WAN setting screen where you have DHCP selected,
also uncheck the "block private networks" (as suggested in the email thread)
- if you are actually using 126.96.36.199 for testing then this may not be the
3. Try this: http://doc.m0n0.ch/handbook/config-interfaces.html
4. DNS from either your ISP or "opendns.com" (see the right side of their
home page for two addresses).
5. You should be able to use your other servers later to hand out LAN DCHP
and DNS information - but I'd use monowall until you can get it working
(fewer variables to debug). I think unchecking the "block" box above may be
the most helpful at this point.
