in the conf file like this:

I tried again with -dd and it seemed to work till I stopped the test and run in
background mode. Here are some parts:

wpa_driver_madwifi_set_key: alg=CCMP key_idx=2 set_tx=0 seq_len=6 key_len=16
WPA: Key negotiation completed with Mac:Address:Router:Here [PTK=CCMP GTK=CCMP]
Cancelling authentication timeout
Removed BSSID Mac:Address:Router:Here from blacklist
CTRL-EVENT-CONNECTED - Connection to Mac:Address:Router:Here completed (auth)

Did I miss something?
