Hello folks. I recently bought a APU2C4 for the solely purpose to have it
as a all in one FreeBSD router, firewall, HOSTAPD.

It has got two mini PCIe Compex WLE200NX,  which uses the Atheros AR9280
chipset.

ath0: <Atheros 9280> mem 0xfe400000-0xfe40ffff at device 0.0 on pci1
ath0: [HT] enabling HT modes
ath0: [HT] 1 stream STBC receive enabled
ath0: [HT] 1 stream STBC transmit enabled
ath0: [HT] 2 RX streams; 2 TX streams
ath0: AR9280 mac 128.2 RF5133 phy 13.0
ath0: 2GHz radio: 0x0000; 5GHz radio: 0x00c0

However though,  I am running into a sort of nightmare with getting 802.11n
to work with hostapd.

Line 6: unknown configuration item 'ieee80211n'

I could be totally wrong, but from what I understood IEEE80211N is disabled
both from the hostapd binary included with system base(I am on FreeBSD
11-relese p9), as well as from the one in ports/pkg.

Does this mean that I won't be getting no 802.11n love?

If so, is there any reason of why 802.11n has been disabled from hostapd?

If this turns out to be true, I honestly don't know whether is worth to
venture compiling hostapd from source or rather going with pfsense, since
they got it patched some 3 years ago.

I appreciate your help.

Thanks,
Pietro
