Thanks for the suggestion, unfortunately that doesn't work. If I set
ap_scan=1 (or ap_scan=0) it won't pick up the hidden access point. What it
will end up doing is just associating with the strongest broadcasted signal.
If I set the essid with iwconfig, then it will not find it.

Did you try setting "scan_ssid=1"?
This helps me find non-broadcast SSIDs.

I have a question. I currently have two networks setup, geographically
separated from each other (one is at home, the other is at work). What
want to do is share the same config file between the two, however I'm
a problem doing that.
The SSID "work" is not being broadcast, and to get on this I have to
the var ap_scan=2. That works great.
The SSID "home" is being broadcast, and I need to set ap_scan=1, which
however it doesn't work with ap_scan=2.
Is there some kind of config option that I'm missing? Is this even
to do? I'd read that ap_scan=2 can only be used for one network block.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
