I've managed to solve this problem. And since I hate when people ask questions,
and solve their problems and dont let others know (in case it happens in the
future), I will let you in.
In addition to the wierd filter issues, I've been having problems with my
interfaces dropping whenever I altered things like the Static Routes, DHCP
settings, Interface settings or even anything on the Advanced page.
This was peculiar, so I decided to strip my m0n0wall down to factory defaults
and manually enter all rules and settings back the way they should be. (In case
something got corrupted or broken at some point).
This seems to have resolved all my rule issues, and my captive portal is now
chugging away happily without being able to access my LAN.
One point to note, backing up the XML configuration and restoring it would not
resolve the issue, even after restoring defaults. This was the first thing I
tried for obvious reasons :)
Hope this helps others in the future (I know there was someone else with the
same issue quite recently ).
