Wep is hardly used anymore and so long as the router is yours "not given to you by your isp" then there are no legal implications.
Monitor mode comes down to the driver, someone could maybe create a driver that could enable it assuming our WiFi chip even has it.
Even then it may not even be stable enough to run anything off it.
Then there is the power draw, Nokia n900 can do these tasks but battery will be gone in ~4 hours, I doubt our phone would last very long.
If you're interested find a forum about it and get reading.
You could also look at backtrack, good a nice tool set.
