This means that the traffic shaper is not enabled (properly) - ipfw
kernel module not loaded. Make sure it's turned on, reboot if
necessary, then post the "ipfw show" output again. The output from
/status.php (anonymized) is also essential if you want anybody to
investigate this issue.
Non-IP packets (that would include PPPoE) are not processed by the
traffic shaper at all.

I've been using PPPoE on WAN ever since I started working on
m0n0wall, and the traffic shaper has been on most of the time, too...
