Are both freebsd APs?

It looks reasonably straightfoward. I really should just give this a
go at home on an extender AP and test the hell out of it.

So, for wifi traffic, you absolutely want the wifi VAPs in a bridge
group as the traffic between stations and APs is all layer-2. There's
no routing involved. If you want to route between the bridge0
interface and the rest of the system then please do so but do put the
STA and AP VAPs into the same bridge group.

(Those scripts do exactly that.)

Thanks, and good luck!
