Thanks for the response. As far as USB not existing in m0n0wall, it
actually does work. See the below post from a m0n0wall user with the SMC
But i understand that additional support for chipsets not included in the
base install is a problem. I was hoping there would be a easy way to do
this, but for now, I guess I will try to run small-form-factor P1's with 2
supported ethernet cards...

I have successfully used an SMC EZ Connect USB Fast Ethernet Adapter
2202USB/ETH with m0n0wall without needing to make any changes to
m0n0wall or its kernel image.
I used it for a quite a few months without any problems what so ever.
