I ran into a problem, if someone could test it I would appreciate it:
FreeBSD 14.0 - fresh install
USB wifi dongle - Realtek RTL8192EU
I configure the wlan0 interface:
ifconfig wlan0 create wlandev rtwn0 wlanmode hostap

Client WiFi devices cannot obtain their IP addresses when connecting to a FreeBSD-13.0 server acting as an access point (hostap).
Client devices run Win8.1 and various Androids, but the exact client software seems irrelevant to the problem.
Suspected technical reason

I do not see either of these listed as supported here:

Does anybody has USB WLAN card to recommend for running AP (hostapd)?
I tried multiple run and urtwn cards but they are not stable - don't know how to precise debug network setup but there are dropped pings to Internet, sometimes internet won't work but ssh-ing to another machine will work...
I am attempting to find out what my issue is with my FreeBSD Router that I am attempting to build. I have set up the following tools on my OS on my router:
All of which appear to work and I can route through the AP. However; I am not getting nearly the speeds or...
Hello folks. I got this APU2C4 last week to use as all in one router, firewall, AP with FreeBSD 11. It has two mini PCIe Compex WLE200NX that uses the Atheros AR9280 chipset.
