When I call systat -if shows that wlan0 out traffic/peak/total are 0 kb(/s). I'm using wlan0 for networking, internet down/upload are working. The in traffic/peak/total are OK.

The wifi chip is Atheros 9285, the module is ath. System is FreeBSD 10.0.

How can I correct this?

If you need some information, command output, etc. I'll share.

This bug is currently being investigated by the developers.

It seems the outbound traffic may be being mis-accounted and assigned to the physical device (iwn0 or ath0, etc) instead of wlan0

try these two commands to confirm:

netstat -I wlan0 -i 1 (shows only incoming traffic)

netstat -I ath0 -i 1 (shows only outgoing traffic)
