I have a wireless router, but not a FreeBSD wireless router as such. Wireless router has four Ethernet ports and a little antenna, is connected by an Ethernet cable to a cable modem which is in turn connected to cable jack. If this router is the access point, I guess I wouldn't use hostap on ifconfig command line. Use "wlanmode sta" in ifconfig?
