my snb6500 router would distribute an IP to the monowall but it doesn't ?? (yes dhcp is on in
router) I do get an address from mono when connecting to the AP (called hotspot)

Just a guess, but since you're using Private IPs on both sides of m0n0, 
you need to make sure you enable them in the interface.  Also, make sure 
you aren't using the same subnet for the WAN and LAN sides of m0n0.

  Do not meddle in the affairs of wizards,
  for they are subtle and quick to anger.
