I also have a network full of sonicwalls, and am fed up of paying top
dollah for them, not when m0n0wall does such an excellent job.
I'm just about to start rolling out m0n0wall to new offices ..
Anyway, I had exactly this problem a while ago with a cisco 2603 router,
link would just drop for no reason to it, after many battles with
sonicwall tech support they told me to manually force the sonicwall to
100mb half duplex, everything then worked.
After they told me I had kind of a forehead slapping moment.
Devices sometimes have real problems if they are both set to auto detect
carrier speed and duplex. Forcing one of them to something will give
the other device something that it knows what to detect ..
Does that make sense ??
Try it out on the sonic.

Not sure if you tried this, but are you using a cross-over cable between
ethernet ports? I make the mistake very often and forget to either use
hub, switch or cross over cable.
I am interested to find out how you plan to integrate m0n0 with
I use a bunch of PRO300's
