How to connect to an other MAC Adress (Client Mode)

    I've a LinkSys WRT54G router running on DD-WRT (the last rc). I'm living near a building full of hotspots (these all have the same ssid). My Mac address is registered on this wlan and I use it legally.

    My router connects always to the same AP, because (I suppose) it's the nearest. The problem is: On this AP seams the dhcp to be down and I don't get an ip address. I've the mac addresses of the other AP, but I don't know how to connect to them directly. The survey shows me just the one AP (I think because of the same ssid and connection data).

    Do somebody knows a command (e.g. for telnet) to show all mac addresses, that my router "can see"(so I can check my list if it's the correct one) and a command to connect directly to this AP?

    I’m sorry for the grammatical and spelling mistakes, I’ve made! ;)

    try netstumbler and you can see all the APs and their associate MAC addresses.

    Netstumbler doesn't work with the router. My PC is connected with a cable. And, I know the mac adresses. I asked for the command to go sure, but more important is the command with which I can connect directly to a mac adress.
