Dear Scole,

Thank you! I will try it out next time I am in the same situation!

athn0 to iwi0 below...

In /etc/rc.conf:
 dhcpcd_flags="-g -4 -q -b -n iwi0"
 wpa_supplicant_flags="-i iwi0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf"

In /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf:
        # or try this instead of ssid=,

I had a lot of trouble trying to backquote network names with
parentheses or quotes in the ssid field so I used the bssid instead.
I'm not sure if "-" will have the same issues.

Good luck
