Hello! First of all - I should say BIG thanks to all developers of FreeBSD which worked hard on implementation of 802.11n stack, and especially the "IronMan" Adrian Chadd, which did so much great work on Atheros support in FreeBSD. When I read March digest of -wireless, I saw message from Adrian Chadd about adding experimental support of AR9830. Immediately I've decided to try it, so I bought two AR9380 pci-E NICs and assembled test box to replace my home router with it. So, in some hours -HEAD were installed, git repository with HAL cloned, everything patched and installed. I was impressed, that hostAP mode is worked from first try. Although, there is currently some issues, like low TX power, stability problems (I wasn't able to get more than ~36hours of uptime still), the -HEAD with mpd5 ->l2tp tunnel and experimental AR9380 support could really serve as home router. My configuration consists of two cards in same box to provide coverage for 2.4 and 5Ghz bands simultaneously in hostAP mode. I'm checking functionality with very different clients, starting from 802.11b old Nokia phone and ending with latest Intel 3T3R MIMO cards. I'll get into more detail in next mails.
