TNX Jakob. The modem is in bridge mode indeed and PPP assigment works
but I would like to be able to use the web interface of the modem and

on miy server on the LAN. I seem to remember that I had this working
when I tested with OpenWRT, a long time ago. But I want to stick to
Monowall, though... I'm used to that and it serves me a well for a few
