Correct.  However, an AP is not a card.  What your AP is maters not to m0n0.

I have several of these.  Good power, but the firmware sucks wind.  Often 
has partial locks and requires reboots.  Someone on the list recommended 
zinwell APs to me, but I have yet to try them.  I have used a LOT of WRT54Gs 
with Thibor and external boosters.  Fantastic APs!  (I just disable WAN) 
You can even daisy chain using the built-in switch.

This only counts if you want the wireless card inside the m0n0wall firewall 
directly.  No on really does this, as host-ap is a poor AP.
