If your FreedomBox is behind a router (i.e. not publicly accessible from
the Internet), then yes, typically you will want the "FreedomBox WAN"
connection to be in the internal zone.

Currently the default configuration is like this:
- If there is only one network interface, then it is internal.
- If there is more than one interface, the first one is external, and
the others are internal.

Basically in the first case we assume the FreedomBox is behind a router,
and in the second case we assume the FreedomBox is replacing a router.
