I see in the man page for ath, and assume much would apply to other wireless 

     Create an 802.11g host-based access point:

           ifconfig wlan0 create wlandev ath0 wlanmode hostap
           ifconfig wlan0 inet netmask 0xffffff00 ssid my_ap \
                   mode 11g

but would the access point, with wired connection, have or use the wireless 

Access point, if I understand correctly, would have a wired connection, such as 
cable or DSL, and the other computer, with the wireless adapter, would have the 
Atheros or other wireless adapter.

Or is this done from the wireless client?

Situation I'm thinking of is where a wireless router has Ethernet connection 
and perheps one computer connects by Ethernet, and one or more other computers 
or wireless devices want to connect wirelessly.
