No, a router generally has at least two network interfaces. A FreeBSD
wireless router would have both wired and wireless interfaces.
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?
It depends on what you are trying to accomplish. Most of the time, the
FreeBSD system is just a client trying to connect to the access point.
This article shows how to set that up both in /etc/rc.conf and manually
