Yep, I have done this.
Actually, via iwlist:
>iwlist ra0 scan
I find the ap. Copy the ap MAC and paste it to:
>iwconfig ra0 ap 11:22:33:etc
when I then run iwconfig:
it does not indicate that I have associated with the ap. My defined SSID (defined on boot via config) is erased, however, so that it now shows SSID=""
when I again define the SSID, iwconfig continues to show that SSID=""
Furthermore. I have no such trouble when the AP is not cloaked. (I would provide more detail, but there are no cloaked AP's at my workplace, so nothing to garner output from.)
