It surely appears that your m0n0 is getting a DHCP offer from your edge router... but the edge
router isn't giving a DHCP lease expiry value which m0n0 does not appear to like. As to the root
cause of that, I'll leave that to Manuel and some of the other dev's.  However, at this point you
should just statically assign the WAN side of your m0n0 with an address on your edge router's subnet
but outside of it's DHCP scope.
