Well as luck would have it I've got a second identical nic. I've already
swapped the two cards so hopefully mono wall will be stable again. I guess
I'll find out in a couple of days.

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!
