Additional information:
Somebody at a messageboard mentioned to me that he had a similar 
problem. When he changed to pfSense it went away.
Yet somebody else mentioned that he had a similar problem because the 
NIC on his mainboard had a MAC adress which was used widely on the 
Internet. When he changed that MAC, the problem went away. Now I tried 
the "MAC spoofing" feature of m0n0wall, my problem persists.
