yes, I'm using iwl3945. with ap_scan=1 and scan_ssid=1 I can connect 
with "wpa_suppcliant -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -i wlan0" followed from 
"dhcpcd". But I get the message "ioctl[SIOCSIWAUTH]: Operation not 
supported". Can this cause a problem?
Another thing, which might be interesting: for using netcfg profiles 
with hidden ssid network you have to put the line SCAN="no" into the 
profile file. If not you'll get the message: network unavailable.
