If you only have one NIC, I suggest you find a nice switch that supports 
VLANs, connect one of the ports as a trunk (accepting any VLAN), connect 
it to the m0n0wall single NIC and implement VLANs over that NIC.

m0n0wall saved my day when I needed to have a "virtual firewall" (a VM 
running on VMware ESX) connecting 5 VLANs, when VMware only supports 4 
NICs; now I have 2 NICs, one for administering m0n0wall, and the other 
for all the VLANs that need to communicate through the firewall.

Just my $0.02.
