To find the problem more details from wpa_supplicant would be needed.
You might want to add following line to /etc/rc.conf and post the log.

wpa_supplicant_flags="-dd -t -f /var/log/wpa_supplicant.log"

But, I'd recommend to try and configure the interface without wpa_gui
first. If this doesn't work wpa_gui won't help. wpa_gui is just an GUI
to configure wpa_supplicant.

But, to save time, you might want to change the adapter. Best choice is
Intel for client and Atheros for hostap. Ralink is doing well too. For
example RT5370 USB dongles work fine for me in 10.3. Available from $20
(amazon) to $3 (aliexpress).

# usbconfig -u 0 -a 4 dump_device_desc

HTH. Cheers and have fun,
