The DS will not send association requests if it:
 o can't find an AP to associate with
 o thinks it is already associated

You can use "iwlist scan" to see if it has found your AP.
The LED flash speed tells you if it thinks it is associated.
You can use "ifconfig nds down" then "ifconfig nds up" to force it to
try to associate again.
