I am trying to make work a TPlink TL WN725N NANO, that have a chip RTL8188CUS
the adaptor works on 11-STABLE but not on 12-CURRENT. I put some traces in the code, it finds the adaptor, but does NOT call the firmware-get code
the code calls ieee80211_ifattach from start to return but the interface DOES Not show wlan0 the word LZT is a "TRACE" I put on the code that shows the function and the source line
Note that the attach code is called, than the ieee80211_ifattach is also colled and exit but the interface wlan0 does not show available.
Any help would be very welcome. as I need to make an access point using the device
dmesg after iserting the device:
ugen1.2: <vendor 0x0bda product 0x8176> at usbus1
rtwn0 on uhub0
rtwn0: <vendor 0x0bda product 0x8176, class 0/0, rev 2.00/2.00, addr 2> on usbus1
LZT function:rtwn_usb_attach name is rtwn0
rtwn0: MAC/BB RTL8188CUS, RF 6052 1T1R
LZT ieee80211_ifattach ENTER
LZT ieee80211_ifattach EXIT
LZT rtwn_attach OKKKKKKKKKK
LZT function:rtwn_usb_attach ATTACH
ugen1.2: <vendor 0x0bda product 0x8176> at usbus1 (disconnected)
rtwn0: at uhub0, port 5, addr 2 (disconnected)
ifconfig wlan0 create wlandev rtwn0 ?
for access point (will be created as 'wlan3'):
- manually (with SSID 'test_hostap'):
ifconfig wlan3 create wlandev rtwn0 wlanmode hostap ssid AP
- automatically (in /etc/rc.conf):
ifconfig_wlan3="HOSTAP ssid AP"
sample config for hostapd(8) (should be in /etc/hostapd-wlan3.conf):

OK it works...
I was confused because the prior version (freeBSD11) on insert of the device
ifconfig shows de device urtwn0
Now the device does not show not even /dev/rtwn0... only a message in the console...
Ok sorry for the noise...
Thank you all
