Hey Madhan,

until yesterday, i had excatly the same issue, therefore i tested first, if my wlan-card could connect to the router without any wep or wpa or whatever. This worked, no problem and was just to make sure, my driver works right.

Afterwards, i tried & tried & tried with all the switches that i found and: finally i got it working with:

- booting the laptop with the card inserted
- as root, in the shell doing:
wpa_supplicant -Dndiswrapper -iwlan0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -w

the wait switch tell the supplicant to wait until a interface comes up. and then i did:
- ifup wlan0


...this worked (and i wonder, if it's just the -k switch?????????)

afterwards, i tested it several times the same way, it worked perfect. Doing some ftp-tests, i have better performance with ndiswrapper than in windows itself (1800 kbps ndiswrapper, 1600 kbps windoze) in the same environement...

Let me know, if this made your card with wpa working.
