Since the lappy is the client, and the atheros card in the x86 dd-wrt box is the AP,
I've put that in the lappies /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-wlan0 profile, then did
an ifdown wlan0;ifup wlan0, but it rejects that with:

Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8b06) :
	invalid argument "Client"

And the ifup rapidly terminates, and I just noticed it is saying this:
Determining IP Information for wlan0.../etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-eth: line 273: 3134 Terminated	/sbin/dhclient ${DHCLIENTARGS} ${DEVICE}

So how the heck did ifup-eth get involved?

I have very carefully gone around on the lappy and killed anything that
comes even close to resembling the NetworkManager stuffs, but there is a
krfcommd that I can't find out anything about it other than its unkillable.
Or was, I can't find it now. Maybe it finally got the message that it was killed :)

There doesn't seem to be any such options in the dd-wrt's 'setup' page.

Anybody on the fedora list with any ideas, turn green and jump right in, please.
