Yes. I've used no special settings, I just enabled the wireless nic
(remember you'll need 1.2b5 or later to get atheros based cards to

However this crash problem is mostly related to bad atheros driver
support in FreeBSD 5.3 I think.. Once I actually got it to work in 11g
mode for 5-10 minutes or so before it crashed, but not all devices
could associate with it, and it felt very unstable. I actually made
the m0n0wall crash just by removing the wlan card from my laptop! :-)

So I guess it's 802.11b mode until better drivers are included with m0n0wall.
