Hi John,

That explains everything. ALIX is a totally different board than the  
WRAP (even though it's from the same manufacturer and intended as a  
replacement for the WRAP), and the 1.2x m0n0wall images will not work  
properly on ALIX boards (as you've just discovered). You can only run  
m0n0wall 1.3b on ALIX boards at this time.

At this point, pretty much all you can do is take out the CF card and  
reflash it with m0n0wall 1.3b7. So far, a preliminary image with the  
AT&T/Bellsouth fix has only been released in the 1.2x branch (-> 1.233- 
pre). However, now that MPD 4.4 is available, it will only be a matter  
of days until m0n0wall 1.3b8 (which will then also include the fix and  
work on ALIX boards) is released.

If you have a WRAP board lying around, you could plug the CF in it and  
then download the config via the webGUI. Otherwise, it'll get more  
complicated and probably require the use of a FreeBSD machine.
