You're thinking about it the wrong way round.  The static routes are
designed so you can tell m0n0wall what networks are behind a router
connected to your LAN or OPT interfaces.  WAN is anything that's not on
your LAN / OPT interfaces.

m0n0wall is not designed to support multiple WAN links - you may want to
look at pfsense (although I've never used it so can't say whether it
will solve your problem).
