I'm afraid you won't get 300 Mbps from any wifi device on OpenBSD.
Our 802.11n support is still in very early stages.
The best access point OpenBSD can offer uses obsolete AR9280 Atheros
hardware with 802.11a data rates (theoretical maximum 54Mbit/s).
802.11n is not yet supported by any driver which has hostap support.
For your kinds of requirements, the best solution is an external
access point connected to your OpenBSD box with gigabit ethernet.
