The manpage for ral(4) didn't mention anything about hostap, so I
assumed that it wasn't supported (I don't have any of these cards).
However, the source code contains some references to it, so it might
work...

Use /exec.php to switch it into hostap mode manually ("ifconfig ral0
mediaopt hostap" or so) and see if it works. If it does, please let
me know and I'll change the webGUI accordingly.
