Those should be
    eap=PEAP
    phase2="auth=MSCHAPV2"
for EAP-PEAP with MSCHAPv2 as the inner auth.

You will need to set the network interface up (ifconfig <ifname> up).

If this happens even with the interface up, please verify whether AP
scan works when triggered manually with "iwlist <ifname> scan".

No iwconfig/iwpriv commands should be required for this.

This may depend on which NDIS driver you are using. I have successfully
tested ndiswrapper with Broadcom chipset.

I don't remember whether this was implemented in ndiswrapper. Anyway,
the debug log you sent did not yet get this far..
