Force the card to register to the Access Point given by the address,
if it is possible. When the quality of the connection goes too low,
the driver may revert back to automatic mode (the card finds the
best Access Point in range).

It may not be possible if the connection quality is too low. What does
'iwpriv scan' say when you are in the middle?

You could try setting the freq/channel before the ap.
