thank you, this was exactly stuff i was looking for, external linksys or other is already here, but i want to do one device this stuff. unfortunatly the device has no mini-pci slot, i'd love to build it like this as i see very good atheros support in fbsd. however, if the other drivers also support hostap mode this would be a way to go.current-8 is of course not applicable for this job as i want a stable system ;-)

thank you guys very much for your help,

iam thinking of building a router with usb wlan and usb ethernet controller attached. as the wlan device shall be an AP i would go for atheros stick. however, i'am unsure if anybody has expirience if or which devices should work out of the box with latest stable release. i read something about a "uath" device module but could not find it in my sys-tree.

uath is only available in 8-CURRENT and I am not sure, if it does Host AP mode. (The same goes for upgt.)

In 7.2-RELEASE (and 7-STABLE), the only usb wlan drivers are ural, rum, and zyd, but zyd does not do Host AP for what I know (and it was never stable for me). ural and rum both do Host AP.

Maybe this is interesting for you:

Anyhow, why does it have to be usb? From my own experience, usb devices do not work as well as Cardbus or (Mini)PCI. You will probably be much more happy, if you get an ath based MiniPCI card.
