Most likely it's an bad card, those have been rock solid in my experience!

Try looking for the Compaq/Intel cards, the NC3134/3135 are dual port cards
expandable to quad port, I've had piles of these and they're standard intel
chipsets, plus they can also support gige over fibre, though I have no idea
if m0n0wall will support an gige interface, let alone keep up with it on an
low end board!

Kind Regards,
