Excellent ! So it works :-) Does your own network appear encrypted
as well ?

If it's not encrypted, you shouldn't need wpa_supplicant and all
that stuff. A simple

iwconfig eth0 essid your-essid
udhcpc eth0

should do. (Maybe kill off all the GUI stuff before that, lest
it tries to do its own reconfiguration behind your back.)

Then you should be able to ping your router. With the default
settings of the WRT, udhcpc will print

adding dns

That's the address you should be able to ping.

If that works, then the problem with not being able to associate
is probably somewhere higher up.
