The card you have is a gigabit card. I did not see it listed in the
FreeBSD Hardware compatability list. But I could have missed it.
Check out this wiki page for gigbit cards supported by FreeBSD ver
4.11, which is what m0n0wall is built on.
Aslo http://www.freebsd.org should be a bookmark. Welcome to m0n0wall
and good luck. Use ebay for hardware purchases...especially during the
learning curve. It will save you money.
