You really can not make the Fa1 into a switch port. I would not recommend it but it might be possible to configure no ip address on the interface and to configure bridging on the interface and use bridging to pass traffic to the VLAN.
I believe that if you wanted that you could configure another VLAN, put one of the switchports into that VLAN, configure the VLAN interface with an appropriate address, connect the switchport to a WAN connection and have another WAN connection.
It's not that I actually wanted or needed another WAN port but I wondered how I would get one since it showed it could support 3. It may be that 2 are fa0 and fa1 and the 3rd is the analog modem.
