I bought a Netgate RCC-VE 8860 with a built in 802.11n 2T2R Atheros wifi
chip a couple of years ago, and it has been working absolutely great as my
home wifi router.

They have some cheaper models available also. I believe Atheros is your
best supported chipset option for host access points.

I dont believe FreeBSD or pfsense have 802.11ac support yet.

I initially ran pfsense on it without issue, but switched to stock freebsd
because I prefer it.
