Adaptec  "Quartet64" (ANA62044) 64bit PCI card.
This one work, but I'm not sure if it's available anymore

Brian,

You might want to check out multi-interface PCI network adaptors instead
of USB ethernet interfaces. 

Dlink used to do one but I'm fairly sure they are now end-of-life. You
may find them still though if you trawl through Google or eBay.

Intel make dual and quad interface server adaptors, both 100Mbit/s &
1Gbit/s:

tm
http://www.intel.com/network/connectivity/products/pro1000mt_quad_server
_adapter.htm

Soekris have also just started supplying dual and quad interface
adaptors:
http://www.soekris.com/lan16x1.htm
However I am not aware of anyone on the mailing list confirming their
absolute compatibility with the drivers in the current m0n0wall images.
Maybe I'll add one to our imminent Soekris order and find out?

For wireless connectivity you will probably get more mileage by using a
Ethernet connected wireless access point in Ethernet-WLAN bridging mode
on the relevant m0n0wall interface. This could be connected directly
using a cross-over cable (MDI-X) if required, negating the need for a
switch/hub. If you do a quick search of the mailing list archives you'll
see Manuel recommending this approach on a number of occasions in
response to people reporting problems and limitations when using
wireless interfaces with m0n0wall.

Best wishes
David
