Not sure about your defaultrouter issue, but as for this after note
regarding wireless adapters not displaying in ifconfig before their wlan
cloned device is created, this is the expected behaviour in FreeBSD 11.

It was changed with commit r287197:

The new way to show which wireless adapter is available is:
% sysctl net.wlan.devices

The configuration in /etc/rc.conf required to activate a wireless adapter
has not changed.
