I saw this too. After issuing the above command to set the SSID, try
this command and see what happens:
iwconfig wlan0 essid on
After that, mine worked just fine. Also, I think once I had to switch
the security from restricted to open to see the SSID set:
iwconfig wlan0 key open
Just some things to try. They worked for me.
