Oh.. That is new for me. How can I manually clear the ARP? Is there any menu
on the GUI? I cannot find any menu to clear ARP cache in the console nor in
the web GUI? If you mean Proxy ARP, I did not set any nor see any entries
that can be cleaned.

As to clear the ARP on the device on the other side of m0n0wall... Do you
mean the 24 ports switch? How? I uses regular cheap non managed switch.

This sounds very much like you are not clearing your ARP caches when
switching the interfaces around.  The switch database should sort itself out
but you will definitely need to clear the ARP cache on the machine you are
testing from in order to see m0n0wall.  And you will probably need to clear
the ARP caches on the devices on the other side of your m0n0wall.
