Well the solution was a stupid mistake on my part anyways.

I just misspelled the essid of the AP.

Once I got it spelled right it was just a matter of typing this:

iwconfig

iwlist wlan0 scan

iwconfig wlan0 essid myessid key mykey

dhcpcd wlan0

Someone with wlan issues may read this and decide to double-check their spelling - jic. Even if they did get theirs right, it's still a good exersize. You wouldn't be the first to make a silly mistake, this way some good comes of it.
