You my friend are AWESOME!
THATS EXACTLY what the problem was.
Even before trying it out I KNEW this would definitely work, long and
behold... IT DID..

Changing adapter type for nics did not work for me, so i did the following

Steps I've taken to make this work :
1) used vmware converter to clone monowall (so I can do testing on this new
clone, rather than messing up current firewall settings)
2) deleted the NICs from new vmware cloned monowall
3) readded the NICS and selected : adapter type -> e1000
4) Started new VM and setup interfaces & Ip addresses
5) downloaded the configuration from webgui on the old vm monowall
6) restores configuration on the new vm monowall
7) shut down old VM monowall & setup original ip address of new firewall.

voila done... works, no more checksum errors and I can now FTP with no
issues. Problem resolved!
Thank you Manuel
