Since no one has replied...  I'm running a Freedombox on an apu1d4

and it uses Network Manager.  The FreedomBox software

makes it easy to set up a gateway/firewall system that is secure
and offers many other services so it's also a home server.

The FreedomBox software handles a lot of the details you ask about,
but you might also have to customize depending on your specific
requirements if they differ from what the FreedomBox is designed
to do in its default mode.

Maybe not what you want but it's an option.

Thanks for the reply. I am currently using ClearOS 7.4 on a homebrew box and it can do it as well but it does not use Network Manager. I hear that they would like to use network manager when v8 is released as upstream (Centos/RHEL) do, so I thought I'd investigate and I could not find out how to do various things in nm:

1 - change the DHCP server range of addresses for a Wireless Hotspot
2 - get WPA/PSK to work on the hotspot (it would configure bit not allow connections)
3 - add other DHCP options to the Hotspot DHCP server
4 - Configure a wired LAN interface (as opposed to WAN interface) with a fixed IP and a DHCP server

I''d love to know if this is possible.
