The chipset on that card is "too new" for the hal present in  
1.2b5-1.2b7.  No other m0n0wall variant even supports
Atheros chipsets.

You have four choices:

1) return the card, and try to get something with a 5211 or 5212  
Atheros part, run 1.2b7
2) 'upgrade' to one of the FreeBSD 6.1 powered m0n0wall beta releases
3) run pfSense (also FreeBSD 6.1 powered, and a lot like m0n0wall)
4) give up
