 Hi

 all you need is:

 interface=wlan0
 driver=bsd
 ssid=CACHEBOY_11N_1
 wpa=3
 wpa_key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
 wpa_passphrase=PasswordGoesHere
 wpa_pairwise=CCMP
 ctrl_interface=/var/run/hostapd


 I haven't tried running the wifi with an mtu greater than the default
 (1500). Why are you trying to do this?


As far I understand MTU 2290 is native to wireless/ath/freebsd driver.

Look at this
ath0: flags=8843UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST metric 0 mtu 2290
ether cc:b2:55:00:68:1f
media: IEEE 802.11 Wireless Ethernet autoselect mode 11ng hostap
status: running

But when freebsd creates wlan0 it's lowered to 1500. I tried with another
ath WiFi card this way - worked fine with 2290 MTU in a bridge. BTW 2290 is
max value, but it seems than noone looked into wifi MTU under freebsd,
theoretically it could be about 7k to 9k - normal jumbo frame. 2290 is some
kinda way of baby jumbo frames - they're slightly bigger than 1.5k.

So next is the bridge. By default bridge uses the MTU of a first member, so
if it will be a stock ethernet i-face so it'll be again 1500.

If you're asking me why am I to use increased MTU - I see it reasonable.


 you also don't need to say ht, it'll automatically do ht for you.

Hi,

It's a hold-over from what wifi will let you get away with. Just stick
to 1500 and let the 802.11n A-MPDU aggregate things as appropriate.
