Default Problem setting up a multiport router!!

Hardware list
  • 4 ethernet ports
  • a dwa552 wireless adapter (OpenBSD recognizes this as athn0 and not ath0! This adapter is a/b/g/n)
  • Using OpenBSD 5.0
  • Installing non-free firmware files on first boot? [yes]

  1. Have servers access the internet thru re1 on the openbsd machine.
  2. Have wired clients access the internet thru re0
  3. Have wireless clients access the internet and intranet thru athn0. {No bridge mode preferably}
  4. Different gateways in order to prioritize traffic
  5. Split DNS for both IPv4 and IPv6
    • First split for internal access via re0,re1 and athn0
    • Second split for external access via re2 and re3
  6. Split DHCP for both IPv4 and IPv6
    1. First split for wireless clients using athn0 as gateway.
    2. Second split for wired clients using re0 as gateway.
  7. Use this instruction for non-routable addresses

What I am settling with
  • 2 Wan ethernet ports to the internet ( load balancing)
  • 2 Lan ethernet ports on the intranet.
  • A wireless adapter for wireless intranet ( Host AP mode)

Before connecting the device directly to the internet; l have it place behind a commercial router.

I followed the instructions on http://www.openbsd.org/faq/faq4.html#InstMedia

Available network interfaces are: re0 athn0 re1 re2 re3 vlan0.
Which one do you wish to configure? (or 'done') [re0] Enter

IPv4 address for re0? (or 'dhcp' or 'none') [dhcp]
{step followed}
IPv6 address for re0? (or 'rtsol' or 'none') [none] fc09::f256
{step followed}

Available network interfaces are: re0 athn0 re1 re2 re3 vlan0.
Which one do you wish to configure? (or 'done') [done] re1

re1: & fc09::f625
re2: skiped
re3: dhcp {re2 and re3 would be connected to the internet that's why l didn't configure re2 and set re3 as DHCP}
*No DHCPv6 with commercial router

My problem!!
Available network interfaces are: re0 athn0 re1 re2 re3 vlan0.
Which one do you wish to configure? (or 'done') [done] athn0

Here where l need guidance.
I want to set this router as an access point (host AP)
I need to use 802.11 a/b/g and n
set the channel to 8
ESSID: mangoroes
wpa : {lets say concorde9concorde9concorde}

I looked at http://www.openbsd.org/cgi-bin/man.c...nfig&sektion=8 in vain

WRT to the split DNS and DHCP
I know it can be achieved on linux but not sure if it can be achieved on Openbsd? Any one can confirm this?
