This is the event that was missing from the WPA EAP-TTLS case. I have no
idea it would be only missing from WPA EAP. I would have understood
completely failed association since NDIS drivers use different auth_mode
configuration for these. However, both cases were generating association
event. In other words, yes, this is more on the ndiswrapper side..
Either ndiswrapper does not know how to read/parse the assoc info in WPA
EAP case or the NDIS driver you are using is doing something odd.
