What is this "AP name" exactly? In which frame is it transmitted (I haven't seen it in 802.11 standard)? What is it used for? If someone can answer these, I might try to add code for setting it ;-).

RID cnfOwnName can be set with 'iwconfig wlan0 nick foobar'. However, this might well be something else than the AP name you mentioned.
