Not without a bit of work.
is a Prism5 (Frisbee) based design. While the high transmit power is
nice, the receiver leaves
a whole lot to be desired, and on the whole, the cards don't sell well
because they're not as good as a decent Atheros based design. There
is no driver for this chipset in FreeBSD (not even in -current).
You might check out:
http://green.homeunix.org/~green/prism54-driver/pff/ You'll have to
make it build and
integrate it into your m0n0wall image.
Note that the Senao NL-3054MP ARIES is an Atheros-based design, and will
work with m0n0wall 1.2b7. (I happen to have one in a wrap board,
running m0n0wall, (well, OK, right now its running -current, but with
the swap of
a CF card, the statement could be true) about four inches from my left
elbow as I type this.)
You'll have to decide if your time and effort are worth the price of a
CM-9, NL-3054MP Aries or NL-5354MP+ Aries2.

p.s. while I'm here, netgate also sells m0n0wall powered outdoor 802.11
units (based on the wrap 2C) as well as
offering a WRAP 1D in an indoor case with m0n0wall preloaded on a 64MB
CF card. We call it the m1n1wall. :-)
