Ok, the airport looks like the right sort of device.

The pair of items I have been looking at a little earlier today are:
http://www.netgear.com.au/products/prod_details.asp?prodID=214
to attach behind OR to replace the existing router

and this as the card in the m0n0
http://www.netgear.com.au/products/prod_details.asp?prodID=236

QUESTIONS:
- Am I correct to assume that these devices will be fully compatible with 
m0n0?
- Can anyone see any problems with operating a router BEHIND another router? 
(see below)

My CURRENT setup
---------unit 1 (cable owner)-----------
Cable modem
RJ45 ->
           RT314 router
           RJ45 ->
                    unit 1's PC       (192.168.0.0/24)
           RJ45 ->
                    unit 1's Laptop (192.168.0.0/24)
---------unit 2 (Me)-----------
           RJ45 ->  (****strung from unit 1 to unit 2****)
                    unit 2's m0n0wall WAN (192.168.0.0/24)
                    RJ45 ->
                             CNet switch
                             RJ45 ->
