You were most likely letting the modem do NAT. This explains why the modem
hanged up, a lot of (home)-hardwarerouters have the same problem: A lot of
connections, and it locks up. When the modem is in bridgemode, slap me if
I'm wrong ;), it only passes data from one interface to the next. You could
try to set the modem in bridgemode since you are behind the m0n0wall box.

i had the same problems! and i discovered that resetting the modem solved
the problem also. my dsl modem couldn't handle all the connections my
filesahring tools made. i am know using traffic shaper to limit all outgoing
traffic to 90% of my upload bandwidth. no more hangups since then.
give it a try ;-)
