hmmmm since you are PC based, simplest would be to add a nic card just to 
configure then take it back out....or wont giving the WLAN an IP and then 
configuring your client with the next IP allow them to talk regardless of SSID 
since no WEP is enabled yet?

the SSID should be the FreeBSD default of basically nothing.

What does netstumbler see as the ssid?

FYI - netstumbler is a great wi-fi diagnostic tool....get it immediately and 
save yourself some headaches.
