I have the same problem with madwifi-ng. It associated, does the dhcp
thing and after a few seconds tears it all down and starts again.
I found that if I only have one network clause and set ap_scan=2 and
ssid_scan=1 then I can get it to work.
This is with WEP. I can't get WPA-PSK to work at all. Lots of
"operation not supported" messages.
