Specific AP (MAC address) association on Ubuntu with Cisco a/b/g PCMCIA card

I need to associate to a specific AP as opposed to assocating to an AP with a specific ESSID with the strongest signal.

iwlist ath0 scan
Gives a list of several APs, and several with the same ESSID. I have moved to an location where the signal levels are similar from several APs and should be fine to associate.

I was hoping
iwconfig ath0 ap xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
would associate me to a specific AP from those that are available? It does not manage to do this.

iwconfig ath0 essid <name> ap <specific MAC>
Still associates me to the strongest signal AP even though I specify a different AP MAC address.

I am using Ubunto 2.6.17-generic

And the driver ath_pci (0.9.2)

Can anyone help?
