LEAP is Cisco proprietary, and hence not supported by any software
other than Cisco (at least as an access point).  The Aironet cards are
also not capable of hostap mode, which is required for using m0n0wall
as an access point.  This is a hardware restriction of the cards, not
a m0n0wall limitation.

With a properly configured hostap setup, you could run no WEP on the
wireless and run VPN over it to secure the wireless traffic.
