ipfw in m0n0wall is a loadable kernel module that's loaded when
captive portal or traffic shaper is active, and not loaded when they
aren't.  So if you aren't using either, ipfw won't be loaded, and you
won't be able to use any ipfw rules.  If you want ipfw loaded for some
reason like this, but don't want to use either, you could enable
captive portal on an unused interface (assuming you have one or could
add one).
