If you had an extra ethernet card lying around, you could try putting 
that in the box and assigning that as WAN.  That would at least let you 
assign an0 as OPT1, and then you would be able to see if that solves the 
problem of not being able to configure the wireless settings in the webGUI.

Maybe it's a bug in m0n0wall that if you assign a wireless card as your 
WAN interface it somehow doesn't detect that it's a wireless card and 
doesn't display the additional configuration properties.  Or maybe it's 
by design for some reason?
