Basically you have to do this on one sode:
#iwconfig wlanN mode master essid <Your_ESSID>
and on the other:
#iwconfig "$if" mode managed essid <Your_ESSID>
but this only lets master and managed nodes
to associate. Then you have to configure
ip addresses exactly as you do it for wired LAN,
[/me uses ip instead of ifconfig buth that is not essential]
Show us your `ifconfig -a` please.
