My feeling is that's something in my router that BSD doesn't like and Linux doesn't care (since it works).
Instead of posting my custom kernel config, I decided that I will give it another two radical tries: - first, I'll compile a generic kernel - second, if the first attempt is unsuccessful, I will try a complete reinstall of FreeBSD, to get rid of all the configuration tweaks I made If it will not work after that, I will remove BSD from my system. I don't want to waste your time and mine dealing with this annoying issue anymore.
