I believe I did get the chipsets mixed up, thank you for the correction. I'm seeing support for
a/b/g in the latest monowall build (1.3b4). It detected my 400mw Atheros based cards(from Netgate)
with no problems. The only questions I have at this point are:

1. Is it possible to control antenna diversity when using two antennas on one card?
2. Is it possible to control the card output power?

I appreciate your help!

1) Atheros never produced an 802.11b (only) chipset.   You must be  
thinking of Intersil/Conxexant.
2) 802.11g (and 11a) are now supported by the FreeBSD basae used by  
m0n0wall and pfSense.   pfSense, at least, ships with support for 11a  
and 11g in the GUI.
