I got the feeling from all my research that this PCIe NIC
was pretty well supported. So went out and got one. I even
wen so far as to compile all the necessary bits into my kernel

FreeBSD . 12.0-CURRENT FreeBSD 12.0-CURRENT #0 r316389:
Sun Apr 2 20:12:40 PDT 2017 amd64

According to dmesg(8):

I should be good to go. I am currently attempting to use this
as an AP. Following the man pages, and the handbook. I can
accomplish most of this via hostapd(8). But using only the
necessary bits from the
/usr/share/examples/hostapd/hostapd.conf proved otherwise --

Starting hostapd.
Configuration file: /etc/hostapd.conf
bsd_set_if_media: SIOCSIFMEDIA Device not configured
bsd_init: failed to set operation mode
bsd driver initialization failed.
wlan0: interface state UNINITIALIZED->DISABLED
hostapd_free_hapd_data: Interface wlan0 wasn't started
ELOOP: remaining socket: sock=5 eloop_data=0x801c78000 user_data=0x0
/etc/rc.d/hostapd: WARNING: failed to start hostapd

Even tho the wlan0 interface was created in rc.conf successfully.
Based on the hardware specs listed from dmesg above. How can I set
this up as an AP with the fastest throughput? I'm on a half acre,
and will be using this for all my "indoor" stuff, and maybe the
garage. I think I've got dnsmasq && pf setup well enough for it
already. I just can't get the thing to work so they can work with
it. Please help. I'll happily provide any additional information
