I have a AR430W running V24.I have configured it in client bridge mode with 128 WEP shared key.
It will not connect.There is no GUI to set shared or open key. I use shared key. I have telneted in and run iwconfig ath0.
Here it is:

root@DD-WRT:~# iwconfig ath0
ath0 IEEE 802.11g ESSID:"ffury4"
Mode:Managed Frequency:2.432 GHz Access Point: Not-Associated
Bit Rate:1 Mb/s Tx-Power:17 dBm Sensitivity=1/1
Retry:off RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
Encryption key:AA93-99C8-4B23-AE52-4107-ABAF-65 Security mode:restri
cted
Power Management:off
Link Quality=32/70 Signal level=-64 dBm Noise level=-96 dBm
Rx invalid nwid:672 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0

I need to now if the reading of AP not associated is correct.

What iwconfig ath0 command should be used to associate ath0 with the mac address of my wireless AP gateway??
Once entered,will it be saved upon reboot?

Thanks
