What kernel version is this?  It might work better (especially if you're
using the latest ndiswrapper) to use the wext driver in wpa_supplicant
instead of the ndiswrapper driver.  (-Dwext instead of -Dndiswrapper)

Only if you can get at logs from the AP that would tell you why it's
dropping the EAPOL-Key frame.  The most common reason is a mismatch in
PSK values, but there are other reasons too.  I think looking into wext
(assuming you have a new enough kernel) would be a bit more promising,
