Using that order I am able to stay connected to the access point. If I
give br0 an address I am able to ping hosts. However, I'm still unable
to get packets through.

I keep seeing this error
ioctl[IEEE80211_IOCTL_SETMLME]: Invalid argument

I searched the madwifi lists and bugs, and it seems there was a bug
reported in the last month regarding madwifi, wpa_supplicant, and that
error. I'm going to contact the madwifi list and see if it was ever a
confimed bug.
