Keep in mind that once you start approaching line speed on the
full-duplex interfaces things break down. Unless you're using something
like a tap.
For half duplex you are probably ok.
The downside to half duplex and multiple interfaces is timing based on
collisions. If you choose to install an ID on both the WAN and LAN
sides of the m0n0wall unit to determine which attacks make it through
timing will be critical to actually match things up. Assuming there's
sufficient load anyway.
