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 
EZ-Connect adapter. 

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.
