I do apologize, you are quite correct.
One of those sentences which started off meaning one thing and ended up
meaning something else entirely I'm afraid.
Although an(4) does not support Host AP, I am sure I read that it is
possible to set up an access point under FreeBSD using the Aironet
4500/4800 cards in a "how to" somewhere, could have been a FreeBSD
Diary, I'll see if I can find it. \
However, ancontrol(8) does not seem to bear this out so perhaps not.
Shame, they are powerful cards.
