            Bug ID: 207445
           Summary: net80211 Atheros AR938x: non-working WiFi hostap since
                    ~ January
           Product: Base System
           Version: 11.0-CURRENT
          Hardware: amd64
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Some People
          Priority: ---
         Component: wireless

Running CURRENT (FreeBSD 11.0-CURRENT #15 r295926: Tue Feb 23 17:20:59 CET
2016) with a TP-Link PCIe WiFi adaptor TP-Link TL-WDN4800 N900 based on
Qualcomm Atheros AR938x chipset. I used this adaptor as AccessPoint with
CURRENT successfully over Christmas 2015 using both laptops and smartphone
WiFi. This doesn't work anymore since ~ mid-January after updating the system's
world and kernel.

I haven't found out what the exact reason is, but as far as I can describe is
that the client still receives its IP via DHCP (isc-dhcp43-server-4.3.3P1_1   
net/isc-dhcp43-server). Then authetication (via hostapd) fails.
