Hello,
I've got a question about configuring WiFi bridged networking in FreeBSD 10
Stable.

The config info:
*Ethernet and WiFi transparent bridged network
*WiFi is protected via WPA2
*802.11n/ht WiFi

FreeBSD Configuration:

wlans_ath0="wlan0"
create_args_wlan0="wlanmode hostap"
cloned_interfaces="bridge0"
ifconfig_lo0="inet 127.0.0.1/8 mtu 9000"
ifconfig_bridge0="inet 192.168.1.1/24 addm re1 addm wlan0 description LAN"
ifconfig_re0="rxcsum txcsum tso -vlanhwtag -vlanmtu -vlanhwcsum description
ToISP up"
ifconfig_re1="description LAN_Ethernet"
ifconfig_wlan0="ht channel 6:ht/20 country RU regdomain etsi -bgscan
bintval 500"



Hostapd from ports:
In rc.conf
hostapd_enable="YES"
hostapd_program="/usr/local/sbin/hostapd"

In /etc/hostapd.conf there's some stuff configured

interface=wlan0
driver=bsd
logger_syslog=-1
logger_syslog_level=4

logger_stdout_level=4

Question 1: Should I use hostapd from world or ports? Does it matter?
Question 2: It seems than order of lines in rc.conf is important, e.g. if I
place wifi before bridge there wolud be an error.
Question 3: how should I configure WiFi device to be 802.11n/ht capable?
When I place some args in "wlan_create" line they do not work or produce
errors.
e.g. if I place this:
create_args_wlan0="wlanmode hostap ht channel 6:ht/20 country RU regdomain
etsi mtu 2290"
WiFi device would be not condigured due to unknown reason while system
boots up.
Question 4: I'd like to have increased MTU (2290), but when I try to add
some MTU stuff to configuration, the bridge0 starts first, adds re1 with
increased MTU and says that it cannot attach wlan0 with MTU 1500.
Question 5: something happens with ht/40+. I just figure out how to
configure wlan0 with ht/40+ at the boot time. When I add it to wlan_create
nothing happens or error happens. Of couse each try breaks bridge0 and cuts
me off so I have to log in directly - that's pain.
Question 6: what sould I configure in hostapd.conf? Or what can I configure
if I'd like to without disturbing wireless networking.

Think different.
Just superior.
