M0n0wall has no USB ADSL support (yet).  It definitely has traffic
shaping, and there's more work on its traffic shaping abilities
underway.  There have been a few requests for USB ADSL support in
m0n0wall, but there's been no progress to date.

Personally, I suggest you buy a real (Ethernet) ADSL modem and throw
that USB toy away.
