This is not entirely true.  One of the bigger complaints from a lot of
people (and evidenced in the survey results) is the abysmal support for
Wireless in m0n0wall.  Currently there is NO supported A or G card that
works with M0n0wall since the drivers aren't in 4.x.

The discussions last fall on this topic made it pretty clear that FBSD6
provided the best path in terms of driver support for these devices.  The
OpenBSD wireless implementation was not given very high marks (I can't say,
that's outside of my knowledge.)
