So with the AP's at work I just use:

ifconfig ath0 nwid <ssid> nwkey <secret> 
dhclient ath0

and with my ahhoc net at home:

ifconfig ath0 nwid <ssid> nwkey <secret> mediaopt adhoc chan 1
ifconfig ath0 inet <IP>

and the other end (1.6.2 box with Lucent card):

wiconfig wi0 -k <secret> -e 1 
wiconfig wi0 -f 1
wiconfig wi0 -n <ssid> -q <ssid> -c 1
ifconfig wi0 inet <IP>
