wombat% sudo acxtool acx0

        Hardware Type:       TNETW1130 (acx111)
        Firmware Rev:        1.2.1.34
        Mac Address:         00:0f:66:c6:d7:f2
        BSS Address:         00:00:00:00:00:00
        Status:              Inactive

        Mode:                Managed BSS/ESS (Infrastructure client)
        SSID:                2HIP
        Channel:             1  

It appears reasonable, but doesn't ever associate.
