Given that, you could always buy your favorite cheap wireless router 
from the local computer shop (linksys, netgear, dlink, etc), turn off 
DHCP for the wireless router and just plug LAN cable in with the LAN 
ports on the wireless router.  Computers will be able to connect via 
wireless and since the router will only work as a access point only, 
they will get DHCP from m0n0wall without any problems.  That's what I'm 
doing with mine since I already had the wireless router, never realized 
that the ones that work inside the m0n0wall had so many problems.
