Thanks for the link and info Chris, that happens to be where I started my 
research too.

That has been my approach so far, and it's been utter failure.  None of the 
cards on my Specs list match any of the cards on my Compatible chipset list. 
There certainly may be one but not that I have been able to fine.

Is there any place to find out what chipsets were added to the 1.2b1 version 
of m0n0wall?  I can't seem to find any documentation on it, but I'm still 
very new at this so I might be checking in the wrong places.
