"wlanmode hostap" doesn't work

It seems, that iwn driver does not support this mode. You can get supported
modes by following commands:

ifconfig wlan0 create wlandev <your_device_here>
ifconfig wlan0 list caps

If you can see HOSTAP in the output, then your device can be used as access
By myself, I recommend Atheros adapters. I think they are the most
supported and feature-rich.
