I have done some more experiments and determined the NAT issue is a
complete red herring.
It looks like the problem is the USB WiFi Dongle. It can receive at ~1
MB/s, but only push out at ~80 KB/s. I am in hostap mode so scping data
into it works as expected but scp'ing data out of it does not.
The primary two options are that I have configured the interface wrong
or the driver has something going on in it.
I plan on perusing freebsd-wireless and the Bugzilla for any
indication. Perhaps, though, somewhere here has experienced a similar
The driver I am using:
