Thanks for your reply!

I might be missing the point here(?) but what I want is better 
security on my WiFi link (between m0n0wall and my PCs), while still 
using the internet over this link as "normal" (ie. for IMAP, SMTP, 
HTTP, FTP etc.)

If this can be done the way you suggest (ie. somehow tunneling 
everything through SSH and/or PPoE) I'd love to hear how I set this up 
on m0n0wall (and Win2k if you know how)?

I was under the impression (but could easily be wrong?) that SSH was 
used with specific types of connection, and that PPoE was mainly used 
by some ISPs for their dsl/cable costumers. (My ISP use DHCP, but will 
always assign the same static IP to me, probably so they can change 
nameservers easily?)
