You might be looking for something like:   
http://www.apple.com/airportexpress/ .  But really there are a lot of  
ways to do what you are looking to do.

Maybe you could do this:
Put a wireless card into the m0n0wall machine to broadcast a signal  
(the Internet connection).  At this point if you have a powerful card  
you might be able to just receive the signal in the other home and  
yours.  You could use this as a standard wireless network.  But if you  
have a router and several wired machines connected in the other home  
then you could use the Apple product above or a Linksys WET11 (  
http://www.linksys.com/products/product.asp?grid=33&scid=36&prid=602 )  
to pick up the wireless signal and send it to the ethernet network in  
the other home.
