wpa_supplicant / ndiswrapper / Dell WLAN 1450 / Slackware

Dear Jouni,

I'm confused.  Which parameters would I need to configure for ap_scan=2 
for NDISwrapper support to connect to my D-Link 614+, other than what's 
in my network block right now:

ssid="<ssid name>"
scan_ssid=1
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
psk="<PSK>"

Do you mean I need to add one or both of the following:

pairwise=TKIP
group=TKIP

Are there other things to add that I'm not thinking of?

- Phil
